" Unloading the boats"
Welcome to my website.
I hope you gain an understanding of what makes me paint and you enjoy looking at the images.
"Drawing has always been my first love . Like most artists I fill endless sketch books with pen and ink drawings, bits of paper and scribbled notes. If I am away from home, at the end of the day I settle down with my drawings, ancient watercolour box and add colour. When I return home to the studio I often don't look at the drawings for a while until I can see the images afresh.
Nowadays I include more figures in my paintings, adding a narrative. I regard painting as problem solving, finding the drawing that makes my heart leap and trying to develop it into an composition of harmonious shapes and colour."
