Whenever I can I would choose to work from life. This is not always possible, working from my reference photos or sketches as the starting point. I then expand and develop my idea to personalise the subject to give my individual view striving to capture mood, light and atmosphere to get my point across. My tutoring around the world allows me to paint many different subject matter in wonderful locations. My mantra is “Indicate do not State” allow the viewer to have input into my work.
