Gallery

My work has been on display at many solo and group exhibitions in England and Germany. It is held in private collections in both countries and beyond. One of my paintings is a permanent feature at a museum in a London Borough. Go straight to paintings or shop or read on.

Here is an example of one of my shows at the prestigious Wallberg at the Essen Philharmonic Hall.

My paintings in oils or acrylics are based on my observations of nature. I am always fascinated by the wonderful colours throughout the seasons with varying light conditions presenting themselves each day. I often paint from photos but I also enjoy working en plein air.

Some of the paintings on this site represent imaginary compositions created from memory. However, many of my works are painted from photographs I took on location. I usually develop a freehand sketch to generate a lifelike image without striving for a photorealistic result.

I always start from the back of the painting blending the sky mostly wet-into wet. Depending on the mood I want to create I have to choose the appropriate hues and colour mixes. Depth is achieved by starting with lighter blue tints at the back with stronger more pronounced hues towards the front of my paintings. Shadows are important to bring out the light, and highlights in certain areas will give you the illusion of sunshine.
