‘Fish Head Soup’








The way that light and the resulting shadows magically transform the dullest, most uninteresting subject into one full of excitement and charm has always fascinated me. Almost anything can be beautiful to paint if it is seen in a pleasing light. This illusive light and shadow design flowing across a landscape or still life is the focus of my oil and pastel paintings.
