I paint in oils on board. On paper.  Canvas.

Charcoal and pastels for different effects. 

Mostly landscapes.

Elemental nature.

 

Nature which consoles

Humbles

Nourishes.

Nature as metaphor.

 

Originally I trained in classical music

Later in fine art.

 

Music and art share many qualities

Blank canvas, sheet of paper, empty room.

Whiteness. 

Stillness.

 

Mark, tone, colour, 

Shape, texture

Dynamic

Disturb the silence.

 

Outside 

Periods visiting, sketching, writing 

Finding my subject.

Feeling the place.

 

Inside

Play, experiment, risk 

Memory, imagination.

Reduce, abstract.

 

I like to work in series.

Exploring ideas of repetition and difference.
