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.
