Still life studies, life drawing, flowers, cats, orang utans and some abstract work
Though my first love is the landscape I do also enjoy the challenge of catching the textures, colours and form of interesting objects - soft, spiky, dry, complex, the fluidity of a cat or the occasional life drawing. All from life apart from the cat. The orang utans were done at Twycross Zoo in winter and the mother was wrapping herself in a sheet for warmth. Their enclosure was heated - I was outside hypothermic on a bitterly cold February day.
