NEW PAINTINGS AND INSPIRATIONS
Radiance is a canvas that is 80 cm x 80 cm, inspired by the beautiful formal pond at the National Trust property - Cotehele. Having visited the gardens for a photo shoot on a particularly glorious day the sun radiated across the waters, illuminating all the colours. I will be delighted to see this piece hanging for the first time in public at the Royal Opera Arcade Gallery, Pall Mall, in March 2020.
A TIME TO REFLECT...
Within a couple of days of lockdown, I felt the need to create a large canvas and to finally allow myself the creative indulgence of producing a piece I have been thinking of for some time.
Pulling together aspects of tones and hues that I have created in other pieces, 'A time to reflect...' provided the perfect calmness and beauty I needed to hold onto during a period of the unknown.
My inspiration is driven by walking through the landscape. As each painting takes many weeks, I take hundreds of photographs and sketches during a site visit, placing myself as if I were painting in situe and capturing the light naturally using no filters. I want to be able to come back to the studio still breathing and seeing all the nuances that have captivated me.
