FROM A SMALL WATERCOLOUR TO THE CEILING OF A STATELY HOME! - Martin Piercy lives and works in Hampshire, England - He is best known by many for his "surf wave" paintings when resident artist at a Portsmouth Gallery in 2001 - As a professional painter it is important for him to try to find a new, original way to paint old favourites, Like Cornish fishing villages and boats, London streets and landmarks, the beautiful British countryside/seascape or rivers, so that the work people buy from him will not be ''just another copy" of thousands of similar paintings.
