If you're making a special trip to the gallery, please call or email to ensure John is not out researching his next painting. Viewing during winter is welcome, but by appointment please.
Enjoy the paining of Peter Copp from Ruby Bay.
Painting with oils allows me to use the rich and transparent colours that are available, I find this is important in expressing the interesting light conditions and movement that you see during the passage of a day.
