I have come to realise that engaging personally with the subject mater is essential in order to create successful painting. This is both instinctive and often elusive. I have tried to do this from 2 angles.
Sketching landscape and allowing my associations with the elements of the image to define the paint technique.
Using photographs of urban scenes to record people’s movement through space.
I realised after a while that what i was doing with both themes was painting pathways and that this reflects my own creative journey.
