About The Artwork

part of a series of Riverbank drawings .The scene is early morning in January some sunshine has at last broken through a low cloud on a cold day.I didn't have to walk far to find this spot it's about 300 yards behind my home, in fact all the riverbank scenes in my drawings are situated in the same area.I have concentrated on trying to achieve a tonal balance in the picture charcoal is something I love to draw with and hopefully the viewer will enjoy looking at it as I did at that particular moment in time .The drawing has an off white mount 3.5 " wide and a black wooden frame ready to hang

I was born in Bury st Edmunds Suffolk in the U.K. and have been painting and drawing for approximately 40 years Paintings are made on canvas or board in oils or acrylics.In the case of gouache,I use a heavyweight watercolour paper.In recent years I have been experimenting with mixed media.This process is quite lengthy because the finished painting is based on drawings that can take a month or more to produce.I enjoy painting landscapes plein air.My method is to visit the same location over two or three days at the same time each day,usually early morning or late afternoon. . I love drawing ,especially with charcoal,for there is such a wide range of mark-making that can be produced.I live and work in one of the largest forests in the UK.My work is in response to the forest,parks,rivers and farmland surrounding my home in Brandon,Suffolk. The cycle of the seasons is something that continually interests me,so the landscape plays a major part in my work.I am still amazed how nature adapts to harsh weather yet recovers to bring fresh growth in spring,yet my work is as much about the process of mark making as it is about representing a neglected lanscape.The Riverbank series I am working on draws a strong inspiration from such local subject matter. A river runs for miles behind my home,and during march 2018 there were strong gales and many well established trees were blown across the riverbank.A drawing I completed after the gales is " Riverbank and fallen tree".I used a sized,heavyweight watercolour paper,and with the combination of plastic erasers,I am able to continually work and rework my drawings by adding further subtle mark making. My drawings are often conceived in a fleeting moment but then take time to unfold,such as "forest march 2018".I visit a site often and at the same time each morning,and I supplement the open air research with many photographs and sketches of the site.I aim to create a sense of light,atmosphere and texture in my work,and apart from charcoal,I quite often use graphite too.
