Original mixed media painting in gouache, pastel, graphite, ink and structura ground on Bockingford Watercolour paper (425gm/sq m), white matt surface and acid free.
"I paint places where I have a connection either personal or through ideas and thoughts that interest me. The Humber Estuary is a major source of inspiration and I use the space it provides to explore these thoughts and ideas including historical references to process of painting itself. The ferry boat and its classical references is a theme I keep coming back to. "The way we look at the landscape determines how we understand and internalise it."
Structura is a paste applied to the surface of the paper to provide some texture as part of the painting process.
