I paint mostly in oil. I can achieve beautiful and vibrant colours with this medium and it allows me to use brushwork to show texture. I paint in an expressively realistic style and I suit the style to the subject I am working on at the moment. I research my subjects thoroughly going out with a camera and sketch book. I can spend months walking up and down city streets looking for interesting buildings and stories that need to be told in paint.
