Derek is a Traditional Watercolourist. He started teaching and painting professionally in Norfolk, 2001. He moved to Cornwall in 2005 and now lives in Luxulyan. Although he favours landscape, coastal and harbour scenes he does have a wider range, enjoying the character of watercolours in almost any subject.
