My paintings while belonging very definitely to the genre of landscape, are not focused on the pictorial recording of a scene or place.  Instead they concentrate on atmosphere, the elements, transient light and weather conditions and their effects on the landscape.  The excitement first experienced by being these conditions, is brought back to the studio, where I try not only to recreate but to build on the mood.  The drama of the elements is echoed by heightened colour, paint texture and markmaking.
