After a visit to Durdle Door, I knew I had to paint it as I was taken back with how the light hit the inside of the arch. Crashing waves helps add drama to the scene whilst the warm tones of the sky helps enhance the glow of the evening sun hitting the rocks.
From a young age, I developed a fondness for wildlife and dramatic landscapes from spending lots of time in woodland around Horsham and visits to the South Downs. As I got older, my interest grew and trips to Snowdonia and The Lake District really cemented my love for the great outdoors, inspiring my art today. Capturing dramatic landscape scenes, often in moody weather; I paint using oils, in a bold, loose realism style.
