Studio Methods

Painting near water is magigal. Dappled light, flickering reflections, ever changing shadows and colours. When not working on a project, I fill sketchbooks with quick studies, a habit left over from art school. In public places, figures add to the story. People are quick to sense being watched; quickly capturing an image is like stream of conscious writing -without pause for thinking or crticism. Though landscapes don’t care how long you stare I still apply the same rule.

When sketching, I often add written reminders about weather, or place or why I drew something.
