|Rainy day at the beach|
He works on Bockingford Rough and uses tube watercolour pigments from Ken Bromley.
|In the woods|
|On the beach|
For the tree trunks in the woodland painting and the masts of the boats in the third picture he painted the edge of mount card scraps and 'printed' the paint onto the paper.
The grasses in the foreground of the first picture and elements of the trees in the second were painted with a rigger. He favoured a rigger from Rosemary which is designed to hold more paint than a conventional rigger.
