Contemporary Landscape Paintings Exhibiting 2014
I paint the
surroundings I am familiar with or places I have visited. In that sense, my
works are autobiographical.
My method is
to begin with sketches and lots of photographs taken quickly. I then search out
the photographs that interest me in some way and digitally manipulate these. I
often print out four or five versions of the same image as a reference for the
actual painting. The sketches give me the compositional information.
I try to
capture the sense of it being a specific place, creating works in a painting
style that is free, expressive and intuitive.
