Random Selections

Painting from nature is an attempt to capture a moment of fleeting beauty. Fleeting - because life is never still. The light and shadows are in continuous movement as the sun progresses across the sky. The sky is forever changing its patterns of clouds and colours. Leaves now flutter then become still; change colour with the varying seasons or abandon the trees altogether. Seas ebb and flow. Rivers become raging torrents or peaceful fishing spots. And so it goes on.......

These random studies are taken from photographs where glimpses of nature are caught and kept still....and an artist can reverence with each stroke the beauty of creation.
