I love to paint anything that evokes freedom. We all need to escape once in a while from the stresses of life, whether travelling to magical destinations, enjoying a creative hobby, just walking in the woods, or relaxing by the sea. Whatever takes you away from everyday life. Or we need the buzz of an exhilarating sport, like surfing, sailing or flying to escape the mundane - to soar among the clouds or ride the biggest waves. I love walking by the sea and in the countryside. I love to express movement, colour and atmosphere which I hope shows in some of these paintings. I spent quite a few years flying gliders at Lasham which was an amazing experience and a lot of fun. I have done several paintings, some of which wers commissions, of gliders and other aircraft. If you would like me to do a painting of a memorable occasion, holiday or scene I would be delighted to do so. See also my prints of wind and kite surfers which would make wonderful presents for a surfer especially with the Sailing Olympics on the horizon! All commissions taken. Action paintings usually work best on A3 or larger paper or canvas, especially If I'm using pastels, oils or acrylics - to make the best of the freedom of movement. I sometimes use several media on the same painting. I especially like the way watercolours flow to convey movement. I also love painting on silk.
