Since self isolating in March, I have been working on landscape paintings of what I call 'remembered walks', culled from photographs, drawings and memories of walks I have undertaken over the last few years, often, though not always, going to or coming back from a pub! A good walk should always involve a nice pub, or so I'm told.
I work on 18 × 13 cm (7 × 5 inch) panels with acrylic paint using palette knives. I enjoy making landscape paintings in a portrait format, very small, having chosen not to use brushes, but knives, because it’s a real challenge. I paint the landscape near where I live on the south coast, and of north Norfolk, where my wife and I (and the dog) visit often, and where we wish to move as soon as we can.
I am greatly influenced by the great Scottish painter Joan Eardley, the St Ives artists Peter Lanyon and Roger Hilton and the American Richard Diebenkorn.
All work is for sale. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
My work appears in public collections, including the University of the Arts and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, and in private collections in Portugal, Spain, Italy, China, US and UK.
