Acrylic on board
A bold springtime sky above bright oilseed rape flowers captured in this seemingly traditional but highly unconventional painting.
Using an original technique developed over many years, each flower and individual blade of grass is flicked onto the canvas using a long, thin brush. The brush never touches the canvas in the painting of the foreground.
The result is a mass of movement and texture. The three-dimensional depth and vivid colours create a vibrant window into springtime.
The heavily textured sky is painted with marble dust and applied using a plasterers float.

My studio is surrounded by beautiful fields and wildflower meadows. These paintings are not a literal representation of them, more how I feel when I'm there.
Here the sky is painted using acrylic rather than my usual oil paint.
I use up to ten different greens, yellows and a touch of white to create the detail and depth of the foreground.
I constantly respond to how the painting changes and try to create somewhere that I would like to be.
