Artist’s Commentary

Large-scale paintings on wooden boards are all made with subtle colours. The ‘black’ paint has a brown and matt quality when mixed with turpentine and sometimes has a blue hue. When the ‘black’ paint is mixed with oil it becomes a very intense glossy black. Multiple layers are built up through this manipulation of the medium creating a rich texture, a beautiful depth and atmospheric composition.
