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.

From one thing to another



When sketched this scene forty years ago Dominica’s Roseau Bay Front was a sleepy sandy beach where fishermen sold their catch.  That was yesterday.  Just as Constable would be painting trucks rather than Haywains if he were to return to earth, my job as a painter is to record today
 
Here then is today’s Bay Front with cruise ship, tour buses, vendors and tourists.


How I miss yesterday!  But in the words of Noel Coward, “The mood has gone to linger on would spoil it anyhow…”
