oil painting
I spend time on location in all weathers recording my impressions of the landscape. Most completed on site but also used to produce studio paintings.
  • Commissions Taken
  • Visitors All Year
  • Tuition Given

I am motivated to paint by that moment when the painting looks a complete statement, independent of the landscape in front of me, saying everything it needs, and no more.  Although preferring to paint on location, I am also slowly learning that recording facts is not always enough and developing my approach accordingly. Regular life painting  to practise my drawing is essential to allow me to paint quickly to capture those moving shadows.
