Working method

I complete the first part of the process on site and then finish in the studio. I tend to make sketches using coloured pencils for colour notes. I also take black and white photographs because I don't want to be overly influenced in terms of colour. I use the impressionist colour pallete.

I build up the paintings in layers ensuring some of the earlier paint shows through coming back to the pictures over several weeks. My main interest is in colour relationships , surface and architecture.

impressionist pallet paints

I paint mainly using Winsor & Newton oil paint(Cadmium red deep, Alizarin crimson, Purple dioxide, Cadmium yellow, Winsor yellow, Yellow ochre, Colbalt blue, French Ultramarine, Viridian), some Senelier (Cobalt violet hue)  and some Michael Harding (Turquoise, Lemon Yellow and Cadmium Red) using the impressionist pallet.
