Paul is a UK based artist living and working in the Wye Valley near the market town of Monmouth. His inspiration comes from being out in this beautiful countryside and experiencing nature first hand. He loves wandering through woodland, especially at dawn, attempting to capture the spectacular light that the morning sun so often produces.
Generally he starts his landscapes with a large brush, working from dark to light and cutting in negative shapes, building up multiple layers of paint in flat blocks of colour to create the light and atmosphere he's looking for before adding the outline with a very fine brush. The colour for each outline is mixed individually, so the whole process from start to finish can take up to 3 months.
