I am a fine art artist specializing in oil seascapes and portraits. I also enjoy painting en plein air to assist me in developing with greater accuracy the moods and lighting in my large seascapes - inspired by my visits to US coasts and my photo references. I paint with brushes in oils on linen and copper. My influences and training are classical and impressionistic. Whether painting from life or from photographic references, my painting techniques on oil and copper are built upon the "bones" of strong draftsmanship.
