After the Storm

New York Skyline 1

Frosty Morning


I am in a lucky position in that I don't have to earn my living through painting, but anything I do is a bonus, so I can paint what I want, when I want and so this results in a collection of quite diverse paintings. For me it is about having a step away from an otherwise busy and chaotic life.


I am drawn to expressing places I have visited where the light and colour interact to provide beauty – wide expansive skies, seas and landscapes; the hues of nature; reflections in water; textures and layers. I love how colour can be built up and blended from its constituents using a palette knife and large soft brushes.


I often start a piece working in acrylics and a lot of water to give a soft primary layer. I then work over this, mainly with oils, as I find they enable me to create depth and levels of colour, with constant blending and mixing of the paint to produce the hue and texture needed.
