I am drawn to landscape, particularly of the Scottish Highlands, and the shapes and textures and forms of trees, grasses and foliage. I like to contrast these with the flat graphic shapes formed by mountains and hills in the distance, and to play with the negative shapes between the main forms. I believe it’s very important to master technique – the better the technique, the more successful the artist will be in achieving the effects they want. For this reason, acrylics are my preferred medium for landscape because they give me a wide “visual vocabulary” and allow me to experiment with different mark-making tools and techniques. The graphic quality of acrylics does not work so well for portraits. For these I prefer to use oils, working by layering on glazes to convey the luminosity of skin, and to blend in soft tones and shadows.
