Marble Hill House
Oil on panel 5x7"
I've always loved paintings of buildings, and I especially love painting rooftops and chimneys - I really enjoy the way they catch the light.
I'm lucky enough to live just down the road from this beautiful English Heritage site. The house was built in the 18th Century for Henrietta Howard, who was the mistress of King George II. Its set in a beautiful park and is definitely worth a visit if you're ever in Twickenham.

I painted this in Marble Hill Park on a beautiful April evening. The golden light was shining right through the newly opening leaves of the Poplar trees and casting long shadows on the grass. I might make a larger studio painting based on this someday.

This leaf blew in through my kitchen window - I think it wanted its portrait painting.

I've had this leaf hanging around in my studio since the Autumn, I really like the way it has curled up and turned brown. It was so grey outside today that there was hardly any cast shadow at all.
I am a realist painter, working in oils, painting landscape and still life.
