My Painting Process
My aim in painting is to create a picture that will leave a strong impression, with impact, that will speak to you, and that will enhance and be very present in your home, almost alive. I use bright, strong colours and textured backgrounds to help me achieve my goal – these are also strong reminders for me of the times I have spent both in India, and the American South West – both areas where colours are strong and brilliant, reflected from a bright sun and deep blue sky. I work principally in acrylics, although I also enjoy working in oils, especially for portraits. In larger pieces, I like to incorporate my unique ‘ secret collage’ where I use hand prepared paper in subtle ways to enhance, and to add texture, value contrast, depth and shadow in a very discreet way.

3. Portraits (commissions welcome)
Please read the following page for details of portrait commissions – I work in acrylics or oils, though oils will take a considerable time to dry. I love portrait painting, especially capturing the essence of the person or animal, the sparkle in the eye, and I will always want to know more about the person or animal, their character, and your memories of them. These are mostly personal ones as an example, ranging from highly realistic to more expressive, as you prefer:-
Measurements are mostly given in inches, and are approximate, to the nearest quarter inch. I can supply metric and/or precise measurements if preferred.
- Prices do not include postage and packing, which I have explained in detail on the next page – and for which I have a special thank you offer to cover 50% of packaging and postage costs, and which are based normally on weight rather than size. I use the Post Office of Portugal, their rates being very reasonable – approximately $70 for a 90cm x 90cm large stretched 3D canvas on a wood frame to the US, for example.
