Gallery 2 - LANDSCAPE PAINTINGS
My local environment in and around East Sutherland is my main focus in landscape. This is where I've lived for over 40 years now and I feel a part of it. Although I have used photography from time to time, it is no substitute for the experience of getting out, absorbing the surroundings and learning through on the spot study. Sketches completed in a short time often under less than perfect circumstances are on the whole more meaningful than photos.
I also sketch on holiday (mainly in France ) where differences in light and terrain make their own challenges.
