Sef on final snow field Ghondor Peak2


I have always loved the outdoors and have climbed and walked in various places in the world, after giving numerous slide shows and talks about my trips to raise money for charity, i realised the slides and photos did not do what i saw justice, so I decided to start trying to paint. I am self taught and use watercolour, acrlic and pen and ink and recently I have started trying Pyrography which I did many many years ago. I only paint the places I have been because I need to feel what I am painting. I also paint the world more or less as I see it when my boots were on the ground, I do not like to beautify a scene or make it more acceptable to all, I feel that is not being true to the wild country we are privalaged to have around us even though I know this means some people find some of my work dull or depressing. I feel I am still at the start of a very long journey with my art and still feel I have a lot to gain from looking at the work of other artists and trying different mediums and ways of painting, I am sure it is a journey that will never end but the trip will be worth it
