Semi-Abstract Landscapes

In these pictures I use brightly coloured grounds - often red or orange - to create extra impact and emotion. I often use wax pastel with acrylic to give a more organic and dynamic surface and sometimes add collage into the mix.

Although they have landscape as a theme, my chief preoccupation is using colour and pattern and to create mood, rather than creating a realistic scene. Sometimes they are developed from earlier outdoor observational paintings, but re-envisioned with heightened colour.
