Tweed Valley series

Since winter 2015 I have been scouring the Tweed Valley for images, sketching whatever looks promising. I have been overwhelmed by the quantity of locations that offer potential.

In March 2016, an old painting friend, Jeff Makin, visited us for a few days in the field and was similarly impressed. It is a goldmine of powerful imagery, always with a theatrical aspect because of the micro-climate created in the caldron of the old volcanic rim.

I'm just now (May '15) beginning to put the drawings into paint.
