The New Forest is littered with ponds, dips and ditches. Often these places are filled with life and provide essential watering for livestock and other animals that inhabit the park. This particular pond seemed quite overlooked on the side of a road. I was drawn to paint the fantastic glowing greens of the pool waters and the sheltered feeling of the grouping of trees. Acrylic on Canvas.

Born in Warwickshire in 1969, Andrew was surrounded by art from an early age; his mother a ceramicist and his father a well-respected London-based painter. Andrew studied at Bournville School of Art before graduating with a BA honours degree from Wimbledon School of Art in 1991, later winning a placement as a resident artist at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. He has taken much inspiration from painters such as Edward Hopper, David Hockney and Giorgio Morandi and more recently the Pre Raphaelites with John Ruskin's drawings in particular. Andrew occasionally work plein air, but mostly it's back in the studio. He has no problems working from photography, and since the advent of all things digital finds the speed and ease of it's immediate reference invaluable in his practice. His work can be found in public and private collections in the UK, USA, Hong Kong, Japan and the Netherlands. He had appeared as a heat finalist in the Sky Arts programme Landscape Artist of The Year in 2018 and 2019. Andrew lives in the New Forest, Hampshire. He is a tutor to a small group of students and is a qualified picture framer (Fine Art Trade Guild Certified Framer).
