The basis of the show will be Welsh mountain landscapes, depicting their dramatic, powerful nature, rather than their calm picturesque persona. Most of the mountain pieces, but not all, have been painted from up high and in winter. The winter months offer far more to the dedicated mountain painter than the friendlier flat light of summer – changing light conditions, low sun, challenging weather conditions and of course easier to find somewhere to park!
Drawing is a discipline which is close to my heart and I constantly search for opportunities to express my love for line. Trees are a wonderful subject matter when it comes to this particular discipline, a mature tree can be such a powerful composition, they also display great depth within a small area, something which I love to explore.
During my travels in search of subject matter I often come across situations which appeal to my sense of satisfaction, these very often involve buildings located in situations which are compositionally pleasing. I have elected to paint these in a lighter manner as a total contrast to my large more complete mountain pieces.
