Thank you for taking the time to view my painting.

I have included urban and countryside scenes together with coastal landscapes so everyone can find a subject of interest to them.

For access to a larger image of the painting, details about the subject etc. just click on the relevant image. Below these thumbnails I have tried to anticipate and answer some queries you may have, but don't hesitate to get in touch if you require further information.

About the Paintings

All of the watercolour landscape paintings shown on the website are my original artwork, I do not have any prints made. Occasionally, I may paint the same location again if requested to do so, but I ensure it will not be a direct copy of the first painting.

Painting in frame

Frames, mounts and glass

Your painting is posted to you ready to hang on the wall. The cost also includes the frame, the mount and the glass. Please see the example of the finished package. Of course, I realise you may prefer to choose your own frame and mount, especially if you have a particular wall in mind where you wish to hang it. In this case, please contact me.
Here are a few comments which may be helpful.

  1. Frames vary in price considerably, therfore you could end up paying more for a frame than you have for the watercolour!
  2. Mounts can be chosen from various styles and colours.
  3. The cheapest glass is suitable if the painting is to hang in a fairly shaded area. However, a non-reflecting glass may be more appropriate, particularly when placed in a sunny spot, albeit the cost of this glass being considerably more.
  4. I can assemble the painting within a frame, mount and glass of your choice, please contact me before purchase so that I can quote you any difference in price. To avoid complication you may wish to buy the painting in the existing frame. On receipt hang it on the wall in your chosen position, if the frame is unsuitable - but you still want to keep the painting, then take it to your local frame maker.

Return the painting if its not to your liking.

When the painting is finished, I then take a photograph to be shown on the website. I try to maintain the same colours in the photograph as in the painting, but you will appreciate, it is difficult to achieve exactly the same match. This is why I suggest you keep the packing until you are sure the painting meets your needs. Given that the painting is still in its original condition, you can then return it to me within 30 days of purchase. The cost of the return postage will be down to you, however on receipt of the painting, I will make a complete refund of the initial payment made.

Why do I paint?

Trying to draw and paint had always been a box I wanted to tick, but when living a busy lifestyle it just didn't happen! Now that I have a little more time it has become a hobby that I wish I had found the time to begin sooner - a familiar story, I guess.
