In September 2023 I began a series of expressive and (not quite) tonalist “invented” landscapes. The compositions record something that I observed in nature that was fleeting but revelatory. The works are in oil using a limited palette, inexpensive chip brushes, rags and my fingers. They are based on observation, eidetic memory, and reference imagery. Like much great art, the paintings are a combination of fact and fiction, hard work and technical competence.
