The tradition of landscape painting has always been the essence of my drawing and painting. Working directly from the environment throughout the seasons my inspiration comes from an emotional response to the ever-changing effects of the natural light - strongly influenced by Turner, and perhaps more modern painters such as John Piper and his theatrical paintings.
My paintings have been inspired by immediate surroundings as well my Spanish travels. specifically, Granada.
My aim is to capture the atmosphere of a place adopting a kind of subliminal approach and sometimes allowing the painting to develop its own story through unexpected results.
