Work from 2018
Oil on deep edged canvas Painted around the edges so no need for a frame. Poppies are painted with a pallette knife so are very textral. It is varnished for protection.
NEAR THE BRICKPITS, WICKEN FEN
Oil on board. Bridge leading to the old brick pits in Wicken Fen. Framed in an off white wooden frame and varnished for protection.
My main focus is to portray atmosphere. I paint lots of fen scenes based on Wicken Fen with the big skies and reed beds. The large open skies of East Anglia give me much pleasure in trying to capture the feel of them, in all their moods.
