Having always loved sitting for hours watching the sea move around rocks I am in my element painting on the beach. The energy of the moving water is much better captured by painting directly onto canvas or board while out in the wind, my atmospheric seascapes always start on the beach, sand and seaweed blow in and the exhilaration of the surroundings become part of the brushstrokes, if they are finished in the studio it is from memory or quick sketches, never photos which remove that immediacy.
