Woodland Light is an ongoing body of work inspired by visits to the New Forest, Forest of Dean and on my door step, Sherwood Forest. Each of these Ancient Forests are areas of outstanding beauty and provide me with a rich variety of subject matter. Much of the work is produced en plein air with only the larger canvases being produced back in my studio.
The work will be available in number of venues throughout the UK (most venues listed below)
