Initial experiments to combine "Abstract-Expressionist-Figurative" painting, using Acylics, Pastels with Mediums on primed canvas. My method starts with selection a base colour and involves automatic mark-making.This way of painting feels both liberating, meditative and cathartic.

An image evolves seemingly naturally although creative process likely to be guided by my subconscious thoughts and potentially reflects truer or purer feelings.  Shades, specific colours form shapes within the frame that develop into abstracted figurative forms and identifiable landscapes that appear to uncovered buried memories and often powerful unresolved emotions about past situations.
