Dry Stone Wall Repairs, Mendip, February
2007 Oil on linen 105 x 169 cm

I am predominantly a landscape painter using oil paint.

I prefer to paint direct from my subject rather than from drawings or photos.

I consider that good drawing is important in my work.

Recently, I have become enamoured with the qualities of oil paint, it’s texture and vibrancy.

I have been attempting to find more expressive ways of applying paint to give texture and enhancement to the canvas surface.
