I live near Darlington in NE England in the UK. I have a long standing interest in meteorology in general, and in the study of clouds (nephology) in particular. Living in NE England gives plenty of opportunities to experience a wide variety of weather conditions! I used to paint skies in oils, but now consider watercolours to be an ideal medium to capture the forms, textures and subtle colours of the skies. Some of my paintings are specific to a location, while others purely focus on the drama and variation offered by skyscapes.
