Sky, sea, colour

At the start of this year I wanted to take a fresh look at things, to liberate the colour within my work.

These are some of the first paintings that have come from that impetus. I am always inspired by the colours around me, even on a rainy day they can be far more dynamic to the naked eye, than on any photograph that I try to take.

I wanted to make these colours dance on the canvas, the three paintings below are from my winter walks along the Cornish coast.

It is not about replicating the beauty of nature, but about trying to respond to it.
