overview

Painting has been part of my life for more than 20 years. Over that time, I have experimented with various subjects and now concentrate on those that demand the portrayal of movement.

The challenge is to make a work come alive and to use colour as well as tone to create the illusions I want. Subjects such as Formula 1 and horseracing allow the use of a feast of rich colours and, with the horses especially, to complement the subject with an impasto technique. My current series of horse racing paintings called Energy reflect both the subject matter and my style, as in Energy 3. I aim to complete each work in a single session (if all goes well!) and I do not use models or photographs. Working entirely from imagination means there are no constraints, with the two exceptions of proportion and perspective. No constraints frees me to explore the whole sense of the subject in one image.

The Formula 1 works, like Speed 2 - Williams FW14, originated in 2009 and the technique is entirely different from my horses, more studied, and I do use models, but they are still illusory, creating the sense of speed through the use of motion blur.
