My preferred subjects are still life, landscape (sometimes with a small animal) and seascape. I also enjoy sketching outdoors.

Currently, I am using watercolour on a gesso-ed support. The gesso is applied with a palette knife leaving some unplanned textural marks.

I also use oil pastels on a support textured with a random rough coating of acrylic in ultramarine and burnt sienna creating a dark background. I don’t use turps and paint only using the oil pastel stick and blending with my fingers.

In order, the paintings are watercolour on gesso, oil pastel, watercolour and oil pastel.
