My favourite media is oil. My style is very free and impressionist using lines, dabs and patches of brilliant colour to piece together the image on the canvas. The image is worked up from an under painting then sometimes a hint glaze of vibrant oil hues finished with soft buttery textured oil paints, contrasting and complementing side by side. Lines long and thin, short and fat, laid thick and thin, bright and dark, seen together combine to form a bold powerful image. How I love to add the life of colour to my paintings, it gives me a real tangible joy. I only hope that I can convey this sense of love I have of the colours, to you through my paintings. Earth colours can be noticeably absent. The vibrant strong colours patched onto the painting lift my spirit and enrapture my soul forming an escape from daily life, I’m traveling again.
