"The two subjects I paint are my two great passions - wildlife and the sea. I hope that, because they stir something deep within me, I transfer that to my work. Whether I am working on wildlife drawings or pastel seascapes I tend to lose myself in my work; I become completely absorbed and the time just fly’s by.
I started using pastels fairly recently and I’m amazed that I had neglected this wonderful medium for so many years. Pastels are instant, I can put on broad sweeps of colour and the card is transformed. I start by putting on the colours very roughly, which gives me the mood of the picture. I work on card, which has a sand texture. This suits my style as it allows me to put the pastels on quite thickly and merge them together creating a feeling of movement, which is perfect for my subject, be it clouds or sea. I put on layers of different colours and then blend them, creating either a soft feeling for the sky or rolling waves and surf of the sea - I just let it ‘happen’."
