  2. Ian…you’re painting are really amazing…..when I saw the available classes, before finding out where you are, I was hoping you’re in the US…..any chance of doing a class in Texas? – Lito


    1. Thank you Lito! Texas is a place I’ve yet to visit but I do come over to California two or three times a year. But I can also do some online sessions if you’d like?


      1. Thanks Ian….so there’s hope after all!….I’m also travelling to California many times a year as my daughter is studying in Pepperdine in Malibu. In fact we’re going there this Wed. Maybe one day on one of your visit we can set-up something. When you got a chance, please send me the info about how the online version works. Thx. – Lito (


  3. Beautiful, inspiring work and life. The way you capture the light… is splendid and unique. Your strong connection with nature comes across. It is inspiring you’ve been doing what you love for 40 years and I cannot even mention the fact you make lavender oil, I love lavender 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration.


    1. Thank you for your kindness. It has been such a gift to have been able to live this life for so many years – thanks to all the people who support me by buying my paintings!
      ….and the lavender is great fun too!

    1. Thank you! They look more photographic at this scale and on the screen etc but the actual painting usually has an ‘aliveness’ that actually feels more real so you’re less aware of the painting itself – it takes you to another place – with any luck!

  4. Hi. I am impressed and curious about your work. Are you combining photography with oil painting? I see you have the camera settings posted alongside the oil painting image. Do you paint from a photo? Or over a printed photo? The results of whatever you are doing are lovely. Karlum


    1. Hi Karlum, thanks for your kind words. Because light is a fleeting thing I use the camera to capture the quality of light in the moment, the painting takes its own journey from there. The camera settings are from the photo of the painting – when I work out how to turn them off I will!
