I aim to capture the interaction of light, colour and atmosphere of the landscape of North-West England, in a contemporary, impressionistic manner.
It's the task of capturing a visual interpretation of what I see - the excitement of “the chase” of portraying a scene - the design, colour, values, harmony & atmosphere - which inspires me to paint.
I work in oil, watercolour & acrylic, painting mainly landscapes, including urban landscapes and buildings. I paint using a combination of location sketches & photographs, as reference for my paintings.
Painting helps me to improve my feeling of wellbeing, which I try to express to those who view my artwork.
