Painting

Making bits of colour look like stuff.

Landscape painting gives me a chance to interpret the landscape in a less literal way than photography. Often I find myself revisiting moments from years gone by, re-interpreting them to capture their essential feeling. I am drawn to powerful colour combinations and bold shapes, and work mainly with a knife and acrylics.
