About my work

Capturing the mood

Inspired by the beautiful towns and cities, landscapes and seascapes of this planet my painting aims to capture their atmosphere, colour and vitality.  I have found that for me the only way to do this is to be there, working in situ and feeling the mood and weather of the moment.  I enjoy the rapport with people passing and having the chance to share my enthusiasm with them.  Watercolour and ink are the simplest solution: using the gentle flow of watercolour and the quick energy of pen and ink to transfer the way the light blends the colours, or the quirky architectural details stand against a skyline, onto watercolour paper.  In an attempt to give a greater sense of place I might move from spot to spot and combine images in one painting.
