Oil paintings

If watercolour were to be thought of as a brass ensemble, oil painting would be the inclusion of the full orchestra.

I still try and capture that same transitory effect of light on coloured surfaces, but oil paint allows you to use greater depth of tone and variation of texture.

The type of painting tends to be determined by the subject. Subtle skin tones demand more careful blending of surface colour whilst faces with more character and maturity might suggest more deliberate brush strokes and possible thicker impasto (depth of paint).

As with the watercolour portraits light and colour are still my main interest.
