My work is mainly inspired by landscape and seascape, particularly around the west coast of Scotland. The changing light and atmospheric effects have provided endless ideas and I seek to capture something of that. Recurrent themes include dramatic effects of the weather, and mountains and shoreline below brooding skies. I simplify compositions and lines often creating a semi-abstraction. My palette is strongly coloured with wide tonal range, principally in oils. The physical act of painting is important to me with paint surface a prominent element as I strive for simplicity of form and overall unity. The paintings I have recently completed attempt to envelop the viewer in the prevailing atmosphere.
