“I find painting in the landscape, a curious mix of contemplation and frantic
activity. Of being chased by changes in the weather, particularly in the UK,
and getting drawn into that quiet headspace which nature always
provokes. It is so physical too, carting all the painting gear, and battling with
the easel whenever there is the slightest puff of a breeze. I try to express in
paint the deep connection with my senses and the environment. Peace
and quiet which pulls at you, versus the business of trying to do justice to
what is out there! I enjoy the fight! I also make lots of drawings while outside
and use these to make the larger oil paintings in my studio.
I hope you relate to these pictures and that they remind you of our lovely
English countryside.”
