Into the Light - smallI am settled in my new studio and office and have set up my new scanner. The first painting scanned is ‘Into the Light’, a fine art 61cm x 91cm oil painting on canvas, created entirely using a knife, in cooperation with Peter Kolchin (Thanks Peter)

I previously posted a blurred photo only. This is a low resolution version of the extremely high resolution scan and the image quality is of course much better.

I have lots of administrative tasks to catch up with, along with progressing a new feature painting! These are busy times… Lots of images and information to follow… Watch this space…

Starving Artist, burning the midnight oil and candle at both ends... The style of my artwork is modern, yet classical. Predominantly figurative, the tendency of my artwork is towards carefully composed anonymity, capturing the emotions and self belief of the subject, rather than characteristic individual representation. The creation of figurative artwork not only depicts the emotions of the artist, it transforms the artist's emotions. Art should be proudly displayed, carefully scrutinized, and in order to benefit to the fullest extent possible, it should be understood from the perspective of its creator - the artist. My figurative artwork is sensual and my ballerinas and dancers are passionate, moody and emotional. My preferred lighting, shading and contrast are dramatic. I simply adore light and am fascinated with its arguably undue influence on any subject. I delve extensively between the extremes of highlights and lowlights in my artwork in a chiaroscuro technique, occasionally minimalist, often leaving the viewer's mind to complete the picture and to add depth. I always strive to create an atmosphere in whatever I produce, at the highest possible quality and using either a knife or brush and a very limited colour palette of oil paint or pastels, usually alla prima, mixing and blending only on the canvas!
