The artist loves
painting in watercolour and paints almost everyday,
although he has drawn and painted most of his life it was only around seven years ago that he started to paint seriously in watercolour and
hasn't looked back since. He has won various awards like "best artist in show"
art commendations etc, he has also shown his work at the Mall galleries
and the Menier gallery in London. He paints a lot of horse and cycling paintings
which he is very popular for and shows at various exhibitions throughout
His way of painting goes back to ink sketches of artists such as Leonardo and Michael Angelo which were drawn freely and with spirit. His inspiration mainly comes from practice and experimentation but also from other watercolour artists who show flair and who aren't afraid to do something different. I think it was Picasso who said that an artist doesn't take from other artists he steals!...we all learn from each other but our creative self comes out in our paintings.
