Intro | Contact | Comments | Links

I have discovered the foundation of good art is having a "good eye": observing how light (and its absence) plays on surfaces and reproducing that in an intriguing fashion, not necessarily photo-realistically, but convincingly at least; and the basis of this is being adept at drawing, followed by the application of colour, tone and shade.

It is my belief that art should have a certain amount of craft in it - I'm a fan of the Old Masters and Pre-Raphaelites, but also admire the spontaneity of more modern and contemporary art. A painting that has taken just thirty minutes' work often has thirty years' experience embedded within.
