About "W2 Elephant"
This painting was done while working on a series for a specific exhibition.
Although wildlife is mot my usual subject matter I enjoyed tha challenge of painting animals in a contemporary manner.
The entire painting was created with a pallette knife in order to give a rough and earthy texture to the work.

I enjoy the immediate impact of large paintings and never feel limited or constrained by that which has seemingly become my trademark. As much as I am intrigued by the human form, I am thrilled and delighted by deep intense colour and the effect of dramatic tonal contrasts on the canvas.
Painting is not a job, it is not a hobby, nor is it just something I simply do. Painting is an extension of who I am. To me, art is a synthesis of my personal feelings, the subject or colors that inspire me and my materials and techniques.
It is the way I describe my emotions, my thoughts, my days. My hopes are contained in the colours and the form my brush strokes make.
The paintings may take the shape of a flower study or a landscape or a nude but even the very slightest smudge of colour is applied with passion and a fascination for the effect that it creates on the blank canvas.
