“Landscape painting to me isn’t about boats in the harbour or cottages with white walls by turquoise seas. Pretty villages are notably absent from my subject matter.”
“The sun, the sky and the earth we walk upon IS my landscape painting. This my reason to paint – the vast basic shapes in a changing sky and the colours of the land beneath it. As an artist, I don’t need much more than this….just a place to stand.”
...I did a pencil drawing of the composition for reference in a new sketchbook and then drove away at the end of the day with the sketchbook still on the roof of the car. Needless to say, it’s not there now.
