Snow Trees in Derbyshire
Inspiration for my landscapes often comes from simple, minimal compositions and the effects of light. In this case I wanted to portray the effects of strong sunlight on snow on a crisp winter's day with crystal clear light. The trees against the snow and sky are handled with limited palette and applied by fine brush.

About the artist:
Martin maintained and developed his love of art from an early age. Although he is almost wholly self-trained, his only formal qualification being an Art “O” level from his schooldays, he has sold work to private collectors around the world and secured coveted gallery space both in London and in local galleries in the Derbyshire area.
Like many artists he came to professional art late. After gaining an honours degree in Economics at Birmingham University and then working in finance he joined the Fire & Rescue Service in Derbyshire in 1977. Whilst continuing to paint he committed himself fully to his art in 2008 after retiring from the Service in Sheffield.
Working mainly in oils Martin’s output is diverse & wide-ranging, embracing landscapes & urban scenes to more figurative/abstract work and portraiture. His painterly style is characterized by his trademark vibrancy of colour and an attention to fine detail, often accompanied by a slightly surreal twist.
