The Art Circus Contemporary Artists

My work falls roughly into three categories; painting in oils from my own sketches, watercolours and photographs, an example here from 2011 which was quickly sold. Subject matter is mainly landscape/seascape but also merges into my portrait work.
Secondly are the watercolours, painted in-situ and mostly during the better weather outdoors. I feel that watercolour is the ideal medium for painting the delicacy of flowers and foliage allowing for transparency in the work.But again I am not restricted here in subject matter and enjoy landscape work.
Portraiture is another of my passions. I can achieve a good likeness by drawing, I use charcoal and crayon, but have moved on to pastels and oil as a love of colour dominates the way I work more than aything in all my paintings.
