John's watercolours have lots of detail but he is far more interested in capturing the mood or atmosphere. A fleeting moment when the clouds open and the light strikes the landscape, the way light enters a barn, the minutes before a storm, moments in life that every viewer will identify with in everyday, the moods of the seasons, the changing landscapes, the flora and fauna, the marks that man has made, farms, crops and animals, in timeless English towns and villages.

The quality of his limited edition prints makes his pictures affordable but still with a degree of exclusiveness.
