A NOBLE DUEL

A series of six acrylic paintings inspired by the energy and movement of tennis players engaged in a duel of wits and skill. The compositions are developed after taking photos and making quick sketches at live tennis matches, as well as viewing matches on screen. 

I have aimed to intensify the feeling of competition between the two players by bringing them closer together and making the composition more compact.

MOVING FIGURES

A series of six paintings

Often tennis players make seemingly impossible shapes with their bodies in a determination to serve or return a ball. When photographing these movements the resulting images can be quite blurred and rather than reject I use them as a starting point for a painting.

LIFE DRAWINGS

I draw from the life model regularly to improve my observation skills and experiment with different media. Often I will use two or more drawings to develop into a painted composition. Drawings are produced using conte, pencil or paint on cartridge paper.

LANDSCAPES

The natural and manmade environment: coast, countryside and city all have an appeal for me. Often drawing and painting the abstract qualities of form and colour in the landscape are enough. Sometimes I will include figures.

STILL LIFE

The infinite variety of working from natural forms such as shells, feathers, pebbles, is very satisfying. As well as being works in their own right I find the range of textures, colours and forms often suggest further developments.
