Initially the landscape works start, studies created, plein air.
I mainly work in and from the night.
Night is more than just the absence of light.
There is a power and energy there.
Humans, we are perceivers and possibly the clearest perceptions come out of the dark, out of the night.
It is impossible to finish the paintings outside, in the awkwardness of working in the actual landscape, so most of the painting is then carried on in the studio where I try to bring, try to capture, try to remember all that a particular place that I once stood in holds.
