A great week in Devon (superb weather) was kicked off with a morning spent sketching and exploring this fantastic
neck of the woods, followed by some oil sketches worked on during the course of the week.

"Every Artist worth his salt should always try to improve on a daily basis. For me, the aim will always be to achieve more with less so to speak, leaving the viewer both intrigued and emotionally moved when confronted by one of my pieces."
I had the honour of being introduced to HRH Princess Alexandra at The Mall Galleries current exhibition to mark the 50th anniversary of the Federation of British Artists. The FBA is made of up nine art societies, including the ROI, and the current Pure Gold exhibition celebrates the work of the societies and their members. In this picture Princess Alexandra discusses my painting at a tea party to mark the celebrations.
