Here’s a selection of recent work from my ever-expanding collection of sketchbooks of various shapes & sizes, together with some recent demo and workshop pieces…Some are very quick studies done in preparation for ‘proper’ paintings, some are simply images I liked at the time, and a couple are digitally coloured versions of an original sketch. Please ask if there’s anything you’d like to see, some of these have been worked up into full on paintings, and are for sale

I have been in touch with you before as an admirer of your work and as my relatives used to live nr Whitby

From my sketchbooks….

As my Auntie for many years lived in Lealholm and also flowergate, Whitby and Runswick Bay area I wanted to contact you to enquire further.

My Auntie has sadly passed away and I wanted to send a card relating to Lealholm or Whitby as a Sympathy/Thinking of you card and put a bit more thought and it will be a touching tribute

I wondered if you could send me any images of the named places which you have painted which you think could be appropriate.

or my email at home is louisebrandwood@yahoo.co.uk

Hello Louise, so sorry to hear your news, and I do recall you getting in touch: was it abut pet portraits? I will look through my files and email you those I think might fit -it will be sometime ver the weeknd -is that OK?

From my sketchbooks….

Yes. What’s not to love about pen and wash and a splash of paint. Looking forward to your demo at Darlington Society of Arts.

Thanks Sarah…and yes, I too am looking forward to coming up to Darlington in JUne….

Where can I buy your sketchbooks John,

Thanks for your interest… if you look on the home page of my site… there’s a link to my Etsy shop, where you can buy the latest edition.

I’ve had several requests to reprint the earlier ones, too, so I might be adding those back onto the shop.
