Artist working in oils with an interest in the wild side.
Friday, January 21, 2011
There is something immensely theraputic about staring out to sea. Julius Olsson the St Ives school artist did this for practically all of his painting life with some remarkably well observed images of light on water.
Drawing was my first language and for as long as I can remember I've used it to communicate, amuse or explain myself. I consider myself to be a journeyman artist working in oils and travelling mainly throughout the west coast of Scotland, Central Brittany, SW Australia and Cornwall. I love remote places and in a world that is too easily protrayed as ugly I have turned my concentration towards beauty. Although I travel alone into the wilderness, (nowerdays aided by a vehicle) it is through my painting that I maintain that essential human contact and a sketch pad is my constant companion.
