My on-line diary began in the 1990's from my studio in the North of England. After a lapse of ten years, I resumed posting from my present studio on the Caribbean island of Dominica.
From the far beginning, the intention has been to give an insight into my working methods, and to share the triumphs, trials and tribulations of work-in-progress.
My diary pages are followed by thousands of artists, art students and art lovers in over 50 countries.

This is a detail from the painting featured in my last post "He made a mess of dat".
It represents one of those rare occasions when a water colour, through the very love of life, comes as close as possible to that miraculous accident that does sometime happen. The painting is awash with suggestion, thus leaving the image open for you to enter into the creative process.
To give thanks for the miracle, the proceeds of the sale will go towards helping a gifted five-year old little girl from my island of Dominica who suffers from autism. This young lady could well be another Stephen Wiltshire (Google the name to find out more). As I am dyslexic, I feel a bond with my autistic brothers and sisters.
My painting of Roseau Market measures 16” x 13”. It is for sale at the bargain price of US$650 in the hope that the proceeds will enable a guardian angel to come to her rescue.
Delivery by DHL or FedEx is included in the price.
