Oil paintings of the sky - Moments of emotion - turbulence. Relief, calm, comfort - Caught on canvas.
My fascination with painting the sky has now stretched to ten years work. The images are bound up with emotion“ the turbulence of wind and weather, the bright relief after a storm, the calm of a summer afternoon. A series of drawings anchors the moments in my mind“ some simply sketches, others intensely detailed works. Finally I translate the images using oil paint, which seems to have the strength to hold the skies onto the canvas, and still leave them free enough to show the original moment of inspiration.
