I work from observing nature, with its colours and varying atmospheres. I've just been completing work from around fabulous parts of the UK with a focus on figures and wildlife as well as paintings of the beautiful Picos mountains of Spain. I've enjoyed painting people happy in nature as I feel human life has been so hard, desperate and constrained all around the world and terrible for a great many in so many various ways.
Next work will include portraits and I hope to get in some scenes of snow if I'm lucky and maybe try out some ideas about pattern if time is available.
