This exhibition encompasses mainly landscapes. Moments when certain light and colours cause heightened emotions. Places that stay in the mind. I try to capture the essential elements through sketching at the scene and from photographs. Encapsulating intuitive aesthetic qualities that relate to my mood or feelings at the time of producing the finished work, or experiment. My work is greatly inspired by the paintings at the Wallace Collection & the National Portrait Gallery.
