These two paintings are acrylic on paper and whilst Afternoon in Tuscany is redolent of the lazy early summer heat, Effie in Venice harks back to the letters home from Effie, John Ruskin's wife, during the time when he was writing the Stones of Venice.

Three Red Labels is a small watercolour painted on location at Arthur Newman's Garden Centre on the outskirts of Aberyswyth one windy day when my eye was caught by the labels fluttering in the breeze.

The two watercolours shown below are part of a series about the Abergwesyn mountain road, the old drovers' track which stretches for about 20 miles between the small hamlet of Abergwesyn and the market town of Tregaron. Edward I granted a market charter to Tregaron in 1292 and from the time of the first Elizabeth until the railway came drovers gathered in the market square to drive their cattle to the London markets. The mountain road, often impassable in winter, is a strange, spectacularly beautiful place with roads that twist and turn, often through narrow tunnels of trees, to emerge above breathtaking vistas of mountain, lake and forest. They are painted entirely with transparent watercolours in many layers. Each layer adds depth and the paintings took many pleasurable hours to produce.
