Whether painting in the sierras of Andalusia or the green fields of England I am reminded that the landscape is constantly changing and perhaps not always for the better.
Making use of my camera, sketchbook and paintbox I try to record the ‘elements’ of what I see tether than exact images. It is the impact of the landscape which I try to convey.
Always avoiding detail and preferring to obtain a looseness almost an abstraction of the subject.
For me, and I hope you the viewer, it is the finished (or unfinished) work that really matters.
In the end it is the painting makes its own demands on what colours, tones, chords and marks it requires. I just do what it tells me to do.
I hope you will like the results and thanks for looking.
