ARCHIVAL WORKS IN OIL---and PASTEL
*Many of these paintings,,especially the landscapes, were painted on location in the eighties and nineties--2000's ,while others were developed in the studio from research studies [and the odd photograph to assist detail when needed.]
[*sizes vary, although many were about 60 x 90 cm, or two feet by three in imperial measurement. As I prefer working "En Plein Air" , the larger size offered more freedom and rhythm, however the type of day and weather was and still is,-- a determining factor!
*The Pastels have been completed using a suitably textured paper-"colourfix" on a warm dark ground.
Larger works were completed using pastel primer on
a matt board. Some have been worked on location,others in the studio.
