Water Paintings

In the early spring when the trees were leafless and overhanging the river in Trevaylor woods I was drawn to the water's stark reflective surface. The exacting reflection of the shadows of trees, and the water's translucency interplaying between form and illusion. Each shift in the light and angle of the sun brought new imagery and sensations, and it became an endless journey through continuous change - restless and inconclusive, but completely compelling. These paintings arose from the power of insubstantiality and the relative nature of phenomena, but I hope to have also caught something more.
