Paul's subject matter of choice is marine vessels, particularly warships and historical vessels. Due to the nature of the subject matter, drawing from life is not essential - instead, photographs, deck plans and older paintings form the majority of his reference material. Paul is happy to follow a detailed brief provided by the client or offer his own interpretation from research into the subject matter. Paul is reluctant to replicate earlier works. Typically a commissioned piece will take 6 weeks to complete.
