My morning begins with a walk before I go to the studio, out of the village and along the Alham, a shallow river less than 10 miles long, lying in a green Somerset valley. I don’t draw from life but the walk and the time for thinking it allows offer a starting point.

The Dry Hill Track to the Alham
The Dry Hill Track to the Alham is a walk imagined. Memory can be insistent and not always accurate but I like the painter Hughie O’Donoghue’s idea that ‘it is always true, it tries to represent the truth as it is felt.’
