"In 'Daydreaming' I experiment with using the light source to lighten a smaller area of the image than I previously would have done. Prior to starting this painting I had been researching more painting techniques and noticed some of the “old masters” used this concept of lightening a small important area of the painting to draw your attention to it. Once again, I've also experimented with this piece, with the light source coming from the front."
"Living in Poole, Dorset, means that I live only a few minutes from the countryside and only a few minutes from the sea so they will always be a feature in my paintings. The Dorset landscape is an area of great beauty and an obvious source of inspiration. Whenever possible I'll take the family off to the countryside to explore nature; it's something I always did as a child. My children are also an indirect source of inspiration as the programmes they like to watch on TV are great fun. The rolling landscapes in shows like Postman Pat, Bob The Builder and many more look so idyllic, they got me to see the world through a child's eyes.
I remember as a child that the Mr Men books were my absolute favourite and they also had those rolling hills, little cottages etc. At the other end of the scale I am inspired by paintings with good brushwork; I love traditional oil painting techniques and although I am self-taught I have always sought out information on such techniques.
