I have always loved water from being a small child and watching my father build boats. Every holiday involved being on a boat or near water, and so now our own holidays never feel complete without a trip out on a boat or a wade in the sea however cold it may be ! So it seemed a lovely thing to turn my focus as an artist to water and really spend some time studying it. So I have already been gathering reference for a year or so and have planned tripped to the very North of Scotland and the outer Hebrides to the calmer coasts nearby and the rich colours of the seas in Cornwall and Devon. It’s going to be windy , it’s going to be wet and it’s certainly going to be interesting !
