My work is very diverse & includes themes like music, dance, opera, sport, the work of Old Masters, and landscape in a broad sense. Work also includes portraiture & still life. Approaches may be fairly literal or more abstracted, loose/expressive or carefully controlled as the subject demands.
Technically, I favour oil on canvas, pen and watercolour, pen and wash, and pastels, and may use some or all of these in developing a theme. â€˜Music & Musiciansâ€™, and work influenced by recent visits to Italy, for example, are each treated in a variety of styles. The former are mostly to do with the playing of music i.e. the relationship between person, instrument and the tune being played.
The Italian theme uses sculptural and architectural forms, some famous, some unknown, but which provide food for the imagination; some paintings contain only glimpses of things seen or remembered and try to create a sense of place.
My prints are high quality GiclÃ©e prints on watercolour paper,limited edition of 100, signed, mounted on acid free board & backing, & packaged in sealed sellophane bag for protection.
