FINE ART PHOTO PRINTS BANGKOK 2010
From Portsmouth, a Naval base and deep water port , I moved to Bristol, in Western England:
an Estuary portconnected to the sea by a canal system and the River Avon. My paintings at
this time had a rather obsessive concern for surface quality, and detail. I was using Damar
varnishes and oils so , there was a certain Renaisance feel to the very dense and
time-consuming paintings I produced.
