About 

Landscape painting. Bringing the outdoors indoors.

Exploring the outdoors, getting away from it all, is good for us..... BUT - there is never enough time. So - my mission is to capture in paintings some of the feelings, the uplift, I enjoy from my wanderings.
This site contains a few samples of my work, I hope you enjoy browsing. Some paintings are For Sale - I know I have not included enough detail about sizes or prices etc of the originals, and technology today means high quality giclee prints of any piece can be created within a week, for around £65 (plus p&p). 
Enquiries welcome with no commitment. email beaconsart@yahoo.com.

A storm blew up within minutes of this - thunder and lightning, which is not nice when you have a metal easel! I came off the hill very quickly.

It is a huge pleasure getting out and 'scouting' for the best views. This is the Sugar Loaf above Abergavenny.

My Work

If I am to succeed in capturing my own exhiliration from the landscape, I must spend time out there - but - unlike the French Riviera, our climate changes from day to day. The sun will probably not be there again tomorrow, so I have to work quickly.

Biography

I began painting seriously in 2013. Before that all of my creative energy - and time - was taken up with the greasy pole of career. My origins are in Edinburgh where I was fortunate to go to a school where the art staff were committed to traditional teaching, but unfortunately in those days art didn't count toward university entrance so I was taken out in order to concentrate on 'proper' subjects.

Eventually I was able to commit time to painting and have developed my expressive outdoor style.
My work has been shown in:
                       Waterloo Gardens exhibition space, Roath, Cardiff
                       The Gate, Roath, Cardiff
                       Pierhead Building, Cardiff Bay
                       Crickhowell Open Studios
                       Welsh Government Senedd building (see left)

Prints are on display at the Three Horsehoes restaurant, Groesffordd, nr.Brecon.

But - I regard this as the beginning, and look forward to creating the next chapters!
