March to November has been a very productive time creating paintings and drawings of British and New Zealand mountains.  A mixture of commissions and personal works brings me up to the beginnings of another Scottish Winter - the time to head to the hills and become imm...

As part of the Nevis Landscape Partnership's series of Nevis Faces films, Dave MacLeod followed me out for a night camped on The Devil's Ridge in the Mamores range of mountains.  The objective was to see the ridge at dawn from a high camp, and be able to do some sketch...

Snow has arrived on the Scottish mountains this week, and I've completed two new paintings inspired by some recent trips out.  Both are classic ridge climbs in the Highlands - The Forcan Ridge of The Saddle in Glen Shiel, and The Devil's Ridge of The Mamores range abov...

Here's the finished 2.5m wide Ben Nevis panorama.  It was delivered to its new owner in December, just in time for Christmas.  Winter has most definitely arrived now in the Highlands, and I'm busy with my next commission of Glen Coe.  Is it the most incredible valley i...

Just a sneak peek at a section of my new Ben Nevis painting.  The piece is to be delivered to its owner next week, so I'll put up the full image after the grand unveiling.

At 1.6m wide, this was a big challenging piece of work, but a great journey - from trips to the area with the tent in February, sketching and planning, looking at my photos, and over two months of painting time.  I went across to Aberdeen to deliver it to its happy own...
