A single cloud might reach from directly above our head to beyond the visible horizon. The bluest sky is tinged with the black of outer space, of infinity. A tree is a truly huge living organism, our seas cover two thirds of the planet. Even a small hill dwarves our largest building projects. This is what my landscape painting is about.
Right outside my window the largest river in the country, the Tay, is pushing towards the North Sea, a few miles to the East of here.
I paint landscape to explore relationships between these massive elements of our natural world. Solar light, the atmosphere and the earth. Clouds, trees, rivers and the sea as they appear at different times of the day in different lights. The significance of these moments is the central theme in my landscape paintings.
