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. Structura is a paste applied to the surface of the paper to provide texture as part of the painting process.
"I paint places where I have a connection either personal or through ideas and thoughts that interest me. I use the place to explore these thoughts and ideas, including classical references, as well as the process of painting itself. JMW Turner's connection to Margate is a specific interest. "The way we look at the landscape determines how we understand and internalise it.""
