Welcome to my art web-site, please have a look around.

The galleries are Mixed Media (added in September 2015) Acrylics and Watercolours.

My art blog has suffered through 2016-19 because of my writing. Writing will continue to take a large portion of my time. If you are interested you can find it here; https://brianfishhope.com and here https://hope-wiki.com

However I am keeping my art going and remain committed to it. I always take my notebook when hiking (which is a weekly activity) and continue with the weekly life class. When the life class was interrupted by Covid I turned to the garden and have really enjoyed flower painting. What the writing has stopped are larger set pieces (both en plein air and studio based) although I have still completed several commissions.

This site is where I give some background about my painting development and experiences and the stories behind some of my pictures.
