As artists we are always developing. I started this site some years ago to monitor my progress at art classes. Some areas have improved faster than others and I expect this to continue to be an interesting journey. Constructive comments are always welcome. Steve.

This is my latest work. Based on an original by Peploe, one of the Scottish Colourists school who did a lot of paintings on the isle of Iona in the early 20th century. Mine is in pastels.

With thanks to Sandy - http://twitter.com/tourscotland
who allowed me to use his photo of Glen Quaich in Perthshire for this piece.

Have put a few finishing touches on this view along the beach at Benderloch.
