I take inspiration from the local landscape, church interiors and my garden. I am a plein air painter whatever the weather and never work from photographs. I paint in oil and pastel on canvas up to 100 x 90cm. When working in the landscape I am challenged by the continual change of light and, in particular, the structure of trees. In my church paintings I have to overcome the challenge of architectural perspective.
Although constrained by Covid rules I have continued to paint locally throughout 2020. The Allotments close to my house with wonderful displays of sunflowers and dahlias provided unexpected inspiration and, as usual, my garden was a source of continual painters delight.
