Artist's description:

I am constantly in awe of the power of nature and was inspired by the gulls on this stormy day, taking advantage of the conditions. Painting this reminded me of being in the centre of the storm, feeling the spray on my cheeks, hearing the waves crashing all around me. The energy I felt continued to invigorate me throughout the painting process.

My Painting Process

For me, painting is a form of meditation, a way of switching off the part of my brain normally reserved for day-to-day issues and concerns. That part is still working, but never on exterior problems that need to be solved. Problems within the painting, such as tone, structure, narrative and expression are the only ones allowed in my thoughts.

I love painting in oils. I love the slow, steady pace with which I can build the layers. I generally work in thin layers, gradually building up the colours, light and shadow, but I also love to contrast this technique with bolder, thicker strokes.

The forms in nature are constantly fascinating to me. I am constantly striving to improve the way I can capture light and movement with paint.
