Drawing, mixed media, painting

My work is a personal response to landscape;  it is very much about a place, rather than strictly of it.  The gestation period can be very long.  I was brought up in Devon and echoes of that experience often creep sideways into my painting.  

I work mainly in oils, sometimes sketching an under-painting in acrylic.  The process can involve a lot of layering and scraping, as well as scumbling and tonking - two lovely words in an artist's vocabulary.

Peter Lanyon is one of my favourite artists, especially his Gliding series.  I prefer to stay on terra firma but in my mind's eye sometimes tip the landscape to achieve an aerial and semi-abstract aspect.   

As well as painting, I make charcoal drawings.  I enjoy the immediacy of the medium, especially when working in the landscape.
