Rainbow Symphony II
Acrylic on canvas

I work in acrylic, using palette and painting knives, a wide variety of brushes, cloths & tools to scratch back into the wet paint.

I  work mainly in the studio, working from photographs; memory ; most  drawings and quick colour sketches are done on site and brought back for my landscape and seascape works. I also undertake portraiture and animal studies, mainly on a commission basis.

 

The smaller paintings are more time consuming to create. You may think the opposite but small works leave very little room for manoeuvre . If a mark is placed incorrectly then many of those beside it will be wiped away in the redoing.
