Concentrating mostly on architectural landscape, seascape, harbour and beach scenes, Duncan has described his inspiration coming from family holidays in Cornwall and Devon.
"The beauty of the environment and the quality of light are an irresistible pull for me to return time and time again. This helps me to produce evocative paintings capturing the changing moods of different seasons and different times of the day and the movement of the sea in it’s diverse moods, rhythms and space."
"I try to capture light, texture and atmosphere in my landscapes and coastal scenes, but also concentrating on the small details, for example, giving the effect of damp seaweed on a harbour wall or reflections of clouds on wet sand." Duncan Palmer
