My colour palette has evolved over the years and mainly consists of blues and browns. I now create most of my paintings using only four colours, natural colours which are found in landscapes and seascapes. My warm ultramarine blue complements my cool phthalocyanine blue. My raw and burnt umbers my staples. I get through a huge amount of titanium white. I never use black. Occasionally a rusty red or an ochre makes an appearance but not often. I try and keep my colour palette simple, neutral and calming. Reflecting on my inner world.
I collect images and colours for inspiration. These come from many different sources and I am always looking. I save them and look at them later, building them into a mood or a feeling. Sometimes a simple colour can inspire a whole painting.
I am always working hard and striving to get better. It takes a lot of work as the process cannot be rushed but I can see development occur and it's exciting bringing my vision to life.
