Paintings


There are five sections here: an archive of watercolours from early exhibitions and then four selections from shows I’ve had in the last decade or so: at Thomas Williams Fine Art, Bond St in 2000; the Saltwater Gallery, Burnham Market, Norfolk in 2005; Gallery 37, Blenheim Crescent, Notting Hill in 2006; and at the Charles Daggett Gallery, Kensington Church St in 2013.

The subjects of each show reflect where I was travelling (or working) at the time. The 2000 exhibition largely features landscapes from Italy and the Outer Hebrides, where I took time off to paint the fast-moving clouds and astonishing turquoise seas while writing Castaway (see Books).

In 2005 landscape photographer Harry Cory-Wright invited me to show at his gallery in Burnham Market, Norfolk with the brief that I should paint exclusively in the local landscape. For this purpose I stayed on a boat out on the marsh in Burnham Deepdale, waking in the early summer dawn around 3 am, sleeping for part of the day, then continuing on into the late sunset around 9 or 10 pm. The show mixed the resulting paintings with Harry’s stunning images of the same part of the world. Seeing the contrast, I very nearly gave it all up to become a photographer, but was reassured when Harry told me that he had started taking watercolour lessons. We both share the same fascination for trying to capture what’s out there in Nature; but Harry’s technology is undoubtedly more advanced.

The 2006 show was a collection of work from trips all over the world, from Australia to the South of France. A year or so after that my first child was born, which may explain the increase in early morning studies in my most recent show in Kensington. This collection features images from trips to Georgia, Italy and Spain, as well as gentler, domestic landscapes from around my mother-in-law’s pub in Tintern, Wales and here at home in London.

These pictures are now all sold, but if you are interested in seeing what I have for sale now, please email me from the Contact Mark page and I can send you jpegs of current work. My watercolours start at £150 for the smallest A6 size and go up to around £500-600 for the largest A3 size.
