Paul works from his home studio in the heart of the Dorset countryside. “Just the sound of the blackbird singings nearby is all I need,” he says. “For a landscape painter, the sunrise and sunset offer up the most potential to create a successful painting. This is because of the long shadows, warm light and wide range of contrast.”
He first produces a small sketch – around 5-10cm – as a simple line drawing with no shading. He looks for an arrangement of shapes which will eventually fall into place. The colours evolve once he starts to paint the sky, with his main interest being how he can play with the light to evoke the viewer’s emotions.
To celebrate 15 years with Castle Fine Art in 2020, Paul used this scene as inspiration for a new artwork titled 'A Winter's Tale'.
