Oil Painting is my favourite medium. I use it to capture the landscape in hopes of revealing the beauty I see. Approaching the landscape head-on: painting on location or ‘plein-air’, offers this opportunity. Plein-Air simply means to paint in the open air or outside. It allows me to express my feeling and emotion by interpreting in paint what I see around me. Simply speaking ‘I paint where I am’, looking to find subject matter with strong impact, such as old buildings, things with a bit of character, and then working quickly to record interesting effects of light on my subject before conditions change throughout the day. Bold use of colour heightens the visual impact of each painting and loose, rapidly executed brushstrokes capture moment-by moment impressions of what is before my canvas. The results can be fresh and spontaneous, but with enough depth to allow finding something new in the paintings each time they are viewed.
