CONTEMPORARY PAINTINGS OF WATER

These oil paintings of just water concentrate on observing and capturing the transparency of the water together with the patterns, reflections and shimmering movements before they dissolve. As a traditional and representational painter my aim is to create a high degree of realism without being too photographic although quite often some of the shapes take on an almost abstract nature.

By working exclusively from my own photography I can select and compose balanced and rhythmic movements throughout the paintings. Using professional quality oil paint selected for the high quality pigment rich characteristics and quite smooth linen canvas enables me to meticulously blend the paint to produce interesting and captivating colour shifts. These paintings are often on a large scale and have often been referred to as striking 'centre piece' paintings.
