This month we are featuring the work by Mark Preston. Mark Preston was born in Derby in 1976. He studied illustration at Anglia University in Cambridge, but it was sketching and painting trips with his father, Rex Preston, to the Peak District, Cornwall and Scotland that really inspired him to become a landscape painter.

Mark paints in acrylics and works mainly in situ with relatively little time spent in the art studio. This direct approach of working from nature, allows him time to observe and experience the subtle changes in colour, light and atmosphere, enabling him to build up an understanding and awareness of the places he paints.

Derbyshire and the Penwith area of Cornwall are the main areas which feature in Mark's paintings. The way that the changing seasons and weather affect these places fascinates him.
