Like many, I  began painting in watercolours. Then moved on to pastels, oils and acrylics.  Oil is my preferred medium for portraits. When painting landscapes I enjoy the freedom of a large canvas which I will block in acrylic and then sometimes ‘go over’ with oil. I like to try to capture the essence of a subject rather than a pure representation.
