I'm Wes, I sign my paintings AWM, it's my Sunday name (Adrian Wesley Martin). Also I like the way it sits, like a little box bridge on the foot of the canvas. I paint everyday, mostly landscapes, seascapes and portraits. Living in the Northwest of England there is plenty of inspiration from the sublime splendour of The Lake District to the Industrial past evident in the crumbling red Accrington brick factories of yesteryear. I love it all. I've just started a series of portraits of my friends for no other reason than I think they have nice heads. I know, my artistic rationale is very straightforward these days. Ok, I paint mostly in Alkyd or Oil, occasionally acrylic or watercolour. I am aware I need to draw more. I love charcoal, pencil and paper.
