Reading Into Tomorrow - Oil on canvas.

I was experimenting with painting using only very few colours and using colour to express mood. I had this painting in mind to reflect on the issue of the energy crisis in the future. How much are we dependent on electrical technology for communication and entertainment. Try going just one day without using anything electrical whatsoever. It’s not as easy as it sounds. Where would you be without your iphone, or your Kindle, or you computer? I have to admit, I’m not sure I’d like it myself.

 

 

The character in the painting is a self portrait. I’ve often used myself for many of my paintings, even if the characters are physically different, I still find myself an inexpensive and readily available model when I need such reference. I do enjoy using and painting other people when I get the opportunity.

 

Here I am while I was working on, Reading Into Tomorrow.

I really wanted to try something a little different for these paintings. My background and training is in Scientific and Technical drawing, and many of my paintings, particularly my earlier ones, I have focused a great deal of effort into very intricate detail and perspective accuracy. I still focus a great deal of effort into my work and I have been developing and still exploring a much more distinctive style, which I am very happy with.

 

Poppies In The Wind - Acrylic on canvas.

 

I felt like trying to create an impressionist style of painting, and focus more on capturing an emotion as well as freezing an image in time. I do paint a lot of surreal paintings, and even my figurative work, I try to capture an emotion as well as an image, but with these new paintings I wanted the emotion to be the focus of attention.

 

Storm In The Poppies - Acrylic on canvas.

 

I have created quite a few paintings on the subject of war, and the damage it causes, but here I wanted to pay respect to those who have picked up arms in order to secure a privileged future for the rest of us. I hope I’ve managed to do that.
