Swimmer (Oil on board, 12 x 12 in) Rooting about in the studio the other day, I came across this painting. Painted around 20 years ago, it was never shown anywhere before today because the subject didn't like it. I think it's safe to show it now.
Welcome to my blog. I'm a professional artist whose work is mainly derived from the study of towns and cities. Light and shadow on buildings is a major fascination while colour and I wrestle regularly. I work mainly in oil paint, but am trying to revive my drawing practice. I'm still very much a figurative painter aiming at some kind of modern representation. I believe in the continuing value of painting and follow in its long and honourable tradition.
