    This painting is loosely based on a view looking across fields to a wood which is very close to my home. The composition is simplified to become more abstract, with a focus on movement, colour and mood, rather than on the details of the scene.

    I am a landscape artist living in rural Hampshire. Central to my work is a desire to tap into the energy I feel when I am within the landscape. This energy for me brings a sense of movement and freedom, and a feeling of connection. I often revisit the same locations to work, so I can get to know these places intimately. A core aim for me is to convey something of how it feels to be within these spaces, and my emotional responses to experiencing nature in this way.

    The first stage in my artistic process is to go out and draw within the landscape, using charcoals and/or pastels. I use charcoals to create tonal studies and pastels to lay down colour. I work rapidly, focusing on key shapes, tones and colours, and trying to capture the energy and feeling of the moment.

    Back in the studio I paint in oils from my sketches and memory. I typically choose a limited colour palette and mix up lots of paint as I think about and plan the work. When painting, I like to work quickly, instinctively and intuitively, focusing on conveying atmosphere and emotion.
