Words about Paul

‘One of the special things about belonging to the Wapping Group of Artists is that our past members seem to haunt the riverbank long after they have physically left us. Paul will be with us for many years to come. We’ll always be expecting to see Paul somewhere, painting with us, wearing his shorts and sandals, leaning forward slightly over his easel with that intense concentration of his. And he’ll be watching us.

Paul, as a master of your art and a truly great teacher, you kept us up to the mark but always in the kindest and most generous way.’
Geoff Hunt, painter and friend, Chair of the Wapping Group of Artists

‘He was a superb draughtsman and brought those fabulous drawings to life with wash after wash of delicate transparent watercolours until they glowed. I can honestly say that Paul taught me to draw, to really look at what was in front of me and not to let my mind make assumptions.’
Suzie Smith, painter, friend and former Chair of Wokingham Art Society
