I love to paint urban landscapes. They allow me to use the full colour spectrum, combining the brightness of painted buildings with the more subtle colours of the natural environment. Similarly, the geometric lines of man-made structures, and the resulting strong shadows contrast with the fluid shapes of nature.

 

My pictures are naturalistic, as they observe the rules of perspective and randomness. They start with a drawing done on location and are completed in my studio as oils on canvas, or acrylics on paper.
