A Painters Journey

Its been quite a while since my last post . Travelling to Ireland last year experiencing new ideas and rekindling lost relationships . The two came together beautifully . After quite a few years in Cyprus painting from my imagination mostly .

In Ireland I became a landscape painter full of  expression .  The difference in light and shade  to the light of the med , gave way to a rebirth of my expressive language .  In a period of 4 to 5 months I absorbed my self in the surroundings of  Tipperary , creating sketchbooks full of  drawings of line and expression searching for a beginning . After weeks of working on  paper , ideas started to unfold .

These sketches proved to be a great starting point for the series of landscapes in oil . A technique / or method which I rarely adopted in my Cyprus Studio .

it was certainly a method I missed very much ……….. Paintings to follow
