Bob’s art is worked from the striking and rugged scenery found in the Peak District. It’s very much focused on paint, and how he uses his oils, with expressive mark making and textures to capture the dramatic physical structures of the Peaks which are enhanced by the light and colour that the seasons bring, with the ever-changing weather that shifts through these landscapes.
It is the childish delight at our splendid countryside and its inhabitants-be they animal or plant, native or carefully encouraged-that continually makes me try to capture this wonder of British nature and the magical part that the changing seasons play within it.
