ARTIST'S STATEMENT

I paint, in watercolour and gouache, subjects taken from my locality; Loch
Lomondside, the Firth of Clyde, the Arrochar Alps, the Campsie Fells, Argyll
and the Trossachs. I also gather material during holiday visits, recently to the
Outer Hebrides and Arran, where the whole spectrum of weather can be
experienced in a single day.

I am primarily interested in weather conditions and aim to give a sense of the
impending weather, i.e. before rain, threatened snow, after rain, windswept,
stillness. I attempt to do this by rendering particular effects of light on the
landscape or seascape, cast shadows, changes in focus, clarity to soft, veiled,
misty, patches and pockets of light.
