I paint in oils and watercolour. Most of my work is produced using photographic reference. Having painted extensively from life and learnt the effects of light this does not detract in any way. The trick is to use sensitivity and find the soul in the photograph.

Ocassionally I get asked to paint a certain scene for a client but more often than not it's The Downs or the seafront that I end up staring at for hours. The other day a stoat bounded up the path as I painted totally unaware that I was there. What a treat.. he got within six feet then smelt me (or the turps) and bounced back into the wheatfield.
