I joined Bournemouth Bay Art Group in 2008 after being a typical “dabbler” over many years and I now work to improve technique, knowledge and skill as fast as possible.
I am one of a small number of oil painters in the group. I prepare an underpainting in acrylic on which to base the final work. My current goal is to obtain a grounding in watercolours to make accurate “field” studies.
For relaxation I sail a dinghy as often as possible with my wife Celia at Poole Yacht Club. I have been Chairman of Bournemouth Bay Art Group since January 2009.
