“I’m an impressionist painter based in West Wales. I take my inspiration from the varied coastline, rocky outcrops and hills of North of Pembrokeshire. Changing light, and its effect on water is what I endeavor to capture and working en plein air is the perfect way of doing so. It’s the truest method of capturing a moment, and the essence of a place.
The majority of my work is produced on location, save for the occasional larger studio piece, which is directly informed by my work in the field. I tend to paint and sketch in a variety of media including watercolour, ink, gouache and graphite, but painting in oil is my main concern.
I make my own paint, and work on small boards which I can carry easily. This format usually allows me to complete a painting in one session, before the light, or tide change too much.
Working in oils means that I can get a lot of information down quickly, accurately, and I’m still able to make adjustments as I paint. It’s also quite weather resistant, and so doesn’t freeze, run or fail to dry if it’s too cold.
Whilst accurate draughtsmanship and good composition are of fundamental importance to me, I strive to maintain the looseness, vitality and freshness that only painting directly from life can bring. ”
