About

If you paint or maybe you collect paintings or simply buy them now and then when you see something you like or just like looking . . . that is wonderful.

.

This is how it is and why

.

Studying in Florence for 4 years, I learnt there are simply shapes, values and colours used to compose truthfulness, or accuracy as it can be called.  By learning how to handle these elements, step by step, momentary inspiration for things, faces and places can evolve into paintings that look like the world I see -an illusion that seems real.

.

If You Paint

Our question changes from   . . .  do I like it?

.

By concentrating on the Shapes, Values, Colours and this truthfulness –  and everything we want to express will happen.

.

If Looking at Paintings is for You

.

I hope you enjoy what I write and the paintings on display here, in the GALLERY and other MENUS above
