I am working on 2 cold wax paintings at the moment, side by side, trying to balance the conflicting demands of perspective, texture and the integrity of the picture plane....so many variables and adjustments to make. I move towards a resolution that I can accept......that's the real game.

I am working on 2 cold wax oil paintings at the moment, side by side on 60 cm x 60 cm panels, trying to balance the conflicting demands of perspective and compositional tension whilst retaining the integrity of the picture plane…. it is of course an impossible and unrealistic task, but occasionally, out of the corner of my eye, I catch a glimpse of a resolution …….that’s the game we play.

Red Fen (40cm x 75cm x 4cm): This is an abstract painting based on the Fenland landscape. The layers of intense translucent deep red pigment are surrounded and bordered by emerald greens. This paint is applied with a soft stippling technique and the transitions of tone. almost imperceptible. The image has a restrained emotional power and is influenced by the work of the abstract expressionists.
