Working in watercolour he concentrates on portraying the British landscape:
“It has always been the immediacy and the instantaneous spontaneity of watercolour that has appealed to me. The most underrated, misrepresented and misunderstood of all the painting mediums. In theory of course it’s simple; you can only lay a darker colour on top of a lighter one. The implications of that have taken me 20 years to come begin to overcome. I’m a watercolour purist; I use no white paint, no highlights, no masking agents, only the paper. Unlike other painting mediums with watercolour there is no room for error, there is no pause, no rewind, only forwards, and no means of correction. It must be executed perfectly first time around, like an actor on a stage.
This makes its performance as a medium all the more impressive, what it can do, the emotions it can stir, the visions it can achieve are it’s alone.”
