Original painting in oil on canvas.
"I came back to working like this after a break of a few years. I had been painting outdoors for four years solid when I decided I needed to get back in the studio and play again with my imagination. Use it or lose it I say, I originally walked away from this way of working for a few years because I didn't want it to become stayed or formulaic as is so easy to do when one doesn't take a step back. I like to think by going outdoors and painting from life it also helps feed back into my imaginative landscapes and of vice versa each informing the other."
