I am passionate about water-based media and enjoy experimenting with a wide range of techniques. I am always looking for new ways of using this versatile medium to represent the landscapes I love. I often use a limited palette of colours which, I feel, gives me the chance to catch the nuance or the drama in a landscape which is constantly changed by the light and shadow of the natural elements.
Whatever individual landscape I paint I am influenced by wide sweeps of mountains, moorland and sea and then fascinated by the detail of drystone walls, rock outcrops and lichens, windblown trees are a particular favourite! The counterpoint of detail within expansive spaces coupled with the alchemy of watercolours themselves has excited and inspired me throughout my life, I endeavour to represent the feelings these landscapes evoke rather than reproduce a specific scene.
