I believe that inspiration somehow comes from within. This always 'kicks in', so to speak, as I see ideas for paintings which are almost everywhere I look - from the sky to buildings, at dawn or at sunset, even at night under a bright moon. Add to these the weather and the pictorial list becomes endless.
Nostalgia also spurs me to paint by looking back to childhood memories with adult eyes; this allows me to be quite free artistically. In my neck of the woods, with the subjects I paint, most people see soot blackened stone and polluted skies. I see colour. Like wet Sienna cobbles and Prussian blue shadows with burnt umber and cadmium skies. I view the world, along with my memories, in the subtle blended hues of my paint box.
Where I live it is impossible to walk a dozen yards from home without seeing old weavers' cottages, cotton and woollen mills, Yorkshire stone flags or cobbled streets that have been there for decades settling in and maturing, watching the landscape change around them.
Every day I get to see and paint this history and people get to share it with me through my paintings. How wonderful is that!!
