British Landscape Paintings
I’m mesmerised by the effects of light: how sunlight breaks through clouds, how the rain clouds bring drama to the high moorland landscape, how sunsets create contrasts that defy description with just words. Colours amaze me: subtle greys and pale misty tints in the woods in the rain, the fresh green of new leaves in the spring, the contrasting reds, orange and blues of a dramatic sunset over the sea. Faces and figures intrigue me: strangers, portraits of loved-ones and relatives, and quick sketches of fellow passengers on the train. If I can capture the essence of these things in my paintings, I’m very, very happy!
When I paint a seascape I’m always trying to capture the movement of light on the sea because this movement never stops – it’s a constantly changing battle between nature, which never wants to stay constant, and the painting, which is of its very nature a motionless freeze-frame capturing of a single moment, perhaps from a single hour within a single day. Of course I never truly ‘win’ the battle, but sometimes I’m nevertheless happy with the painted result! On this site you’ll find a range of my seascape paintings – hopefully you’ll find one that you love.
