Derek Melville has become synonymous with contemporary land and seascape scenes painted in rich, vibrant colours. He looks for tranquillity and calmness in the land and the part man has played on it. It is nature and outdoors that appeal to him, combined with the colour and texture of the paint and his work is very fresh and vivid.
He is a well respected artist and has exhibited throughout the country in his own successful solo exhibitions annually since 200. His work has now been commissioned by the London based international company 'The Artgroup' (Pyramid International) and is in public and private collections throughout the UK.
