I'm a landscape painter from the Isle of Wight, a small island off the south coast of England. The subject of all my paintings is simply the distance. The feeling of space when we stand in front of a landscape and look into the distance. The effect of the colours, tones and lines. I want to find the moment when we suddenly see something unfamiliar, something infinite. I paint in oils on small wooden panels. I like the way the smooth surface of the wood makes the paint drag and blend in unexpected ways. The colours also stand out more because the paint isn't absorbed so much as on canvas. I like to use just primary colours, 3 blues, 2 yellows, 2 reds and white. By blending everything only from the primaries it creates lots of subtle changes of shade even on large flat areas. The greys and browns are also more luminous and harmonious with the other colours. I've had solo exhibitions around the south of England, exhibited with the Royal Institution of Oil Painters at the Mall Galleries in London and sold prints worldwide including work sold by the John Lewis group of department stores. I've joined Fine Art of America firstly because it's a great site! And secondly to make my prints more widely available. I also hope to get to know some artists and buyers from around the world.
