John specialises in large watercolour paintings depicting birds in landscape. These are inspired from observation and field sketches and the picture is developed through a free drawing process in the studio, which is then refined to the finished work using all available reference for accuracy and detail.

He travels widely and always has a sketchbook and camera at the ready to capture the events that will form the heart of a new picture. His art covers a wide variety of subject matter from general landscape and wildlife through to animal portraiture. Watercolour is his favourite medium for its softness and subtlety but he also works in acrylic, oil and pencil.

John takes commissions on all subjects and enjoys painting the landscape and characters around his home. A lifelong passion for the natural history world underlies all his work. His paintings can be viewed at his own gallery/studio in Crowle. He also holds day workshops there and gives talks and demonstrations to a variety of clubs and societies.

John is available for demonstrations and workshops within 100 mile radius of Crowle in Worcestershire.
