Red, white and black
This one is a recently finished commission. The basic composition was spotted in a sketch of mine and I was asked to blow it up to cover a large wall. It's a superb challenge to paint at this scale, believe it or not the adrenaline is flowing, paint is not acting how you imagined, chance comes into play.. That toughest part was figuring out when to leave it alone.

A recent painting for Red News. My take on the Holy Trinity statue outside Old Trafford.
24"x36" Acrylic on canvas.
Connemara Series No.5
Another square, multi-canvas take on the sodden landscape of the west of Ireland. Orange tinged grasses flank opaque, peat infused lakes. Ghost ridges from previous renditions of this scene add texture and some depth to the piece.

From a recent trip to the west of Ireland -
I've spent a bit of time working on these small pieces, mostly trying to figure colours and compositions out for larger pieces - I'll add a couple of more examples soon. Comments and feedback welcome!

Chinatown Street Corner
United in Rotterdam
A tree in a field by a road.
A painting I have reworked several times, I think it's finally finished. Inspired by the landscape of Burgandy in France.
The underpainting was done with brushes, but most of what you see here was applied with palette knives.
