My intention in creating this series of work has been to capture the moments of hustle and bustle and feeling of movement, as well as pauses and moments of reflection.  Capturing the subtle nuances of colour, play of light and the essence of the place to bring you the viewer to right there.

Continually working from the same palette colour relationships are mapped out from the previous painting, and thus informs the current painting.  I draw on the composition with a medium toned oil paint, and then right away start applying the colour to the painting.  I define and bring out elements of the composition, working on both the foreground and background at the same time, creating texture with expressive and painterly brush strokes and the illusion of space on canvas. The quality of light is an important aspect of my work as the mood and essence of the painting are captured in the light.
