I have such sweet memories of The Isles of Scilly in the UK, having been there four times and booked to go again this coming summer. It is so beautiful and it is a painter’s paradise with views around every corner. It is rare for me to part with these paintings.

Daphne Selfe, model

Oil on oil paper, 16×12”

I have recently watched Portrait Artist of the Year 2018 on Sky Arts with great enjoyment and much inspiration. Daphne Selfe was one of the sitters and I thought I would try my hand to see how my work compared with that of the competitors. I found it quite a challenge to paint an elderly lady without overworking the wrinkles, but I am reasonably content with the result. Quite a departure from my usual landscapes.

Anglesey Abbey is a National Trust property near Cambridge in the UK. I visited it a while ago specifically to explore the winter garden and was not disappointed. Many varieties of snowdrops were evident, as were a few early daffodils and helebores. There were some stunning colours amongst the trees and shrubs. Lode Mill is a working watermill a short walk from the Abbey alongside the river, from where this scene was painted. Whole grain flour can be bought from the mill.
