This is a memory of the Leg O’Mutton Reserve at Barnes, an old reservoir that is now a haven for water fowl. It’s an easy place to visit when walking between Chiswick and Hammersmith bridges.

Acrylic painting on oil painting paper

340mm x 235mm
Unframed £55

A road bounded by agaves, so many of which were slowly dying back. These great plants flower only once and I have tried to capture the desolate impression they gave. The road itself led us to Cortijo del Fraile, the now-abandoned farm and church that were the origin of Federico Garcia Lorca’s play Bodas da Sangre. The buildings and surrounding area have appeared in many western films, including at least four starring Clint Eastwood

I was very young when I made my first train journey in Africa, at night, from Mombasa to Nairobi on the old narrow-gauge railway. The indelible memory of peering out of the train at night is the origin of this mixed media picture.

A little pastiche of the marvelous Roman Forum in Rome. It seems fortunate to me that its destruction has halted – now a massive magnet for tourists.

Unmounted £100

Toistadh on the Isle of Lewes sits on a promontory; well outside the small town the cemetery occupies a splendid hillside overlooking the sea. The monuments there are reminiscent of the many Neolithic standing stones in the Hebrides. I have painted this many times and am drawn back by the serenity and grandeur of the place.
