“I describe my work as ‘Painting Nature’, as a direct response to my immediate surroundings; exploring colour, unity, composition and expression yet maintaining the very traditions of painting practice. Making sketches as well as my own visual notes, I paint intuitively and expressively with bold sweeping brushstrokes that sum up whole passages of the landscape before me. Painting on location and in the studio, I often rework paintings intuitively to produce a completed work.”
