Oil Painting. Abstract Landscapes. Strong vibrant layers of colour & texture. Exploring & learning. I like to make mistakes until it works.
I love to paint. It’s simple.
I like to work in many layers of thick oil paint. I try to vary the consistency and application of paint, using knives, squeegees, brushes, masks, dripping, & pouring to create the desired effect. Texture and the way that light hits the rough surface of the heavy paint also intrigues me. I want the painting to come out of the canvas, to be part of the room.
"I love to paint from my imagination often using the horizon line to bring the abstract towards expressionism, but not too far. I find the challenge is to get the right balance between abstract and realism. I often struggle with a painting, experimenting until I feel I have achieved this balance".
