I have put together an exhibition of my new work from my recent travels to Italy, using watercolours. I have used watercolour over the years, however, it is only the last three or four years that I have found a new found love for this medium, I like the instancy, transparency and delicacy. However, my first medium I learnt to love was oils and still is my favourite medium, the reason I wanted to include my most recently painted blossom pieces captured in Roundhay and the centre of Leeds.

Oil on canvas 20″ x 47″. Since August 2016 I began a trilogy that I was commissioned to do of three areas of Leeds. I began with the iconic Corn Exchange in Leeds City Centre, I found this particular piece such an interesting composition the commissioner had chosen, I fell in love. After the first of the trio I then began Call Lane this evokes happy memories for me also again enjoyed sketching with another interesting composition. Last but certainly not least Kirkgate Market what a beautiful iconic piece of architecture! I’m sure this won’t be the last time I study the stunning historic buildings of Leeds.
