Oil on canvas
I don't normally have favourite paintings but this one is an exception. This swirling mass of wildflower grasses encircling a beautiful summer sky is stunning.
My young daughter describes it as the view of a fairy peering up through the grass. Perfectly magical.
Created in a seemingly traditional but highly unconventional way, each individual blade of grass is flicked onto the canvas using a long, thin brush. The brush never touches the canvas, which is constantly turned as the paint is thrown.
The result is a mass of movement and texture with a remarkable three-dimensional depth. This is a complicated painting to create and the outcome is a breathtaking degree of movement and richness of colour. It truly feels like you could run your fingers through the grass.
This is an impressive painting on a deep support and will make a thrilling impact in any space.

My studio is surrounded by beautiful wildflower meadows. These paintings are not a literal representation of them, more how I feel when I'm there.
The sky is painted traditionally using hand-ground oil paint. I work fast with large brushes, blending and moving the paint, gradually adding clouds and creating movement.
The foreground is a blend of alkyd resins mixed with oil paint, which creates the perfect consistency to flick onto the canvas. I use up to ten different greens, yellows, blues and reds to create the detail and depth of grass.
I constantly respond to how the painting changes and try to create somewhere that I would like to be.
