Paintings on Display at Potteric Carr YWT Nature Reserve.

'Sunny Afternoon by the Dragonfly Ponds'

A variety of dragonflies and damselflies can be seen around the ponds on Loversall Field at Potteric Carr YWT Nature Reserve in the warm summer sunshine. 

This painting is on display in reception at Potteric Carr Nature Reserve. it is painted on a 4cm deep box canvas measuring 90x60cm, the sides, top and bottom are also painted so it would not require a frame, it is ready to hang. Price £425

  'May Morning, Cuckoo Calling'

 One of the new paintings in my display in the Kingfisher Tearooms, they replace work recently sold. 

Kingfisher Tearooms at Potteric Carr, a lovely place to stop for light refreshment or a meal, right in the center of the reserve......  Cream teas and hot chocolate are absolutely scrumptious..

Persons wishing to purchase any of my work, can pay,  either cash or card,  at the till in the tearooms.

Stroll and Sketch at Yorkshire Wildlife Trust's Potteric Carr Nature Reserve.

The Springwatch Festival at the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust's Potteric Carr  Nature Reserve, taking place on 30th and 31st May, promises to be a fascinating weekend with many events for a range of interests in the natural world. As part of the festival, as resident volunteer artist, I am leading a 'Stroll and Sketch' group around the Reserve, starting at 10.30 am at Sedum House and finishing at 12.30 at the Kingfisher Tearooms.

My plan is to visit the various parts of the reserve that have become favourites of mine and which I have painted or plan to paint in the near future. I will show you what it is that draws me to the views and we will do rough sketches of them.
If you would like to join me you will need a drawing pad with a hard back around 10x8 inches, a 4B pencil and pencil sharpener/ or a black biro ( with plenty of ink in )

Booking is essential at
