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 on canvas and board up to 90x100cm in oil and pastel. When working in the landscape I am challenged by the change of light and the structure of trees. in my church painting I have had to overcome the challenge of architectural perspective. Although constrained by Covid rules I have continued to paint locally. The Allotments close to my house, with wonderful displays of sunflowers and dahlias, provided unexpected inspiration and, as always, my garden was a source of painter's delight.
