I am currently exhibiting a range of work inspired by nature. I work in oil on canvas, painting landscapes, seascapes and skyscapes. I tend to create an impression of a view focusing on shapes of colour in the sky an the way light is reflected on the landscapes. I am obsessed by using a variety of blues in exiting ways and combining them with other colours. Before and after storms I find particularly pleasing, seeing clouds form or fade away. This in turn leads to pleasing effects on the land or sea below. Sometime this can result in a semi abstract sky or and impressionist style landscape. I am inspired by my locality including Stonehenge, Salisbury Cathedral, the New Forest and the Dorset coastline. The impact of the work is completed by the viewer reminding them of a place, feeling or emotion. I adore using colour in surprising ways, using the golden light of Italy or the vibrant colours of Brazil on a very English landscape.
