I paint whatever inspires me so my work and techniques are often changing depending on mood, weather & environment. I like to sketch outside to capture an impression of a place or feature and work the sketches into finished paintings in my studio. I like particularly patterns in the landscape and textures of rocks and trees and other features. Often the finished result develops from ‘accidents’ in the way the medium behaves, like drips and blobs or the blending of colours. In this way I try to keep my work fresh and alive and always surprising. I also like to experiment with mixing media and styles, sometimes working in a more detailed way and at others very loose and free.
