My two favourite subjects combined.
I have lived in Cambridge for almost 35 years years but King's College still takes my breath away. The view from the Backs is simply beautiful whatever time of year. Here it is in the Springtime when the red poll cattle are brought in to graze the grass close to the stream.
The red poll are found in all sorts of places in Cambridge and loved by the locals. Here they are munching on the millefleur.
I paint detailed, dream-like images in oils, or more recently acrylics, on canvas which incorporate rich night skies and a shining moon. Stories inspired by the detail and pattern of medieval art, tapestries and my imagination. My work is very influenced by the wonderful city of Cambridge where I live.
Photographs can never do justice to my paintings as they change when the light catches the silver or copper leaf. If you would like to view my actual paintings please contact me to arrange a visit to my studio. My work can also be seen at exhibitions: look out for the Christmas Cracker Exhibition from 14 November to 24 December at Byard Art https://byardart.co.uk/exhibitions/christmas-cracker-2020
I also have 2 paintings in the Society of East Anglian Watercolor Artists exhibition https://eastanglianwatercolourists.co.uk/exhibitions
