No Preconceptions Here....
"My aim when I start a painting is to create a colour composition, which is only complete when my original ideas and pre-conceptions have been replaced by a purely impulsive conclusion, which surprises and satisfies me.
The work must contain an illusion of the third dimension giving a sense of some colours projecting forward from the picture plane and others appearing to recede.
The whole must have a felt continuity across the entire picture surface and not appear broken by a too deep recessive space which is the result of poor colour relationships."
