Oil Paintings

My oil paintings are generally built up from on-site sketches, colour notes and even photographs if a particular reference is needed, such as a plant shape or shadows. These are then composed together on board and finally painted in the studio, often over a period of weeks.

The medium allows itself to richer, darker tones and is ideal in exploring the darker more melancholic side of me.
