I like working plein air, looking at the particular light and colours of a time, day, season.

One series of work is about the coast, I have to work fast as the light changes rapidly and colours change dramatically.

This one was done on the first warm day of spring, In the lee of the dunes it was beautifully warm and we were able to sit painting in short sleeved T shirts for the first time in the year, Out on the beach the wind was still cold.

This was done at Wells-next-the-Sea, in Norfolk. We'd walked past the gorgeous beach huts on stilts, past the dunes and sat looking out to sea and across the channel leading to the harbour, to the pine trees opposite.

The sky and sea were blue and it was heaven sitting there enjoying the warmth,
