I love to be outdoor, either in the countryside or by the sea. I try to capture the wonderful places I visit in my paintings. Taking many photos on location then back at home, work on the composition, choose a media, make sketches and a plan before work on the painting itself. I paint mainly in acrylics, building up the layers of paint and often adding texture to add depth and interest to the painting. However, I like to work in oil and mixed media as well because working with a variety of media helps me to develop as an artist.
