These images are part of an ongoing project where the inspiration is derived from walking. These walks are mainly within the Devon & Cornwall regions of the Uk and I endeavor express the area through the less obvious, transient and normally unnoticed. The photographs constantly inform my paintings and vice versa 

The painter should not paint what he sees, but what will be seen.
