Goodall joined the diplomatic service in 1956 and served in Austria, Germany, Indonesia and Kenya, before spending 1997-1991 as the British High Commissioner, the equivalent of Ambassador, in India. He also spent time working in the Cabinet Office, where he helped negotiate the 1985 Anglo-Irish Agreement.
Goodall was taught to paint at Ampleforth College, but started to paint seriously some twenty years later after reading Winston Churchill's book Painting as a Pastime. He works in ink and watercolour, and has held one-man shows in North Yorkshire, London, Durham, Hull and Delhi. He has published two books of his paintings: Remembering India (1997, Scorpion Cavendish; ISBN 978-1900269056) and Ryedale Pilgrimage (2000, Maxiprint; ISBN 978-1871125474).
