Having always been fascinated by water and having had the benefit of a cliff top studio overlooking the sea for twenty five years my paintings have focused on all aspects marine. This approach to painting water was first explored in the 1970s.
My oil paintings of water concentrate on the sensual forms and distortions observing and capturing the patterns, reflections and shimmering movements before they dissolve. As a traditional and representational painter my aim is to create a high degree of realism although quite often some of the shapes do take on an abstract nature.
By working exclusively from my own photography i can select and compose balanced and rhythmic flows throughout the painting that emphasize both motion and the play of light. I prefer to paint in oils on linen canvas, often on a large scale, selecting high quality pigment rich paints that I can meticulously blend to produce interesting subtle colour shifts and a smooth surface.
