Greg paints for the love of being outdoors, and sometimes for other reasons, mostly to record the thrill of a visual experience. He works in all mediums, preferring watercolour for plein air landscape and acrylics for indoor studio work. Painting is not his means of income, but is a hobby, and his source of sanity in an otherwise predominantly left-brained world.

    Love those wonderful ‘Pastoll’ colours in the flower, and the way the leaf falls off the page. I think some of those drops are going to fall onto my keyboard! Wonderful work Greg.

    Beautiful painting – its very satisfying when you manage to paint so well ‘en plein air’,isn’t it?

  • Yes, Geraldine, it is very satisfying. Thank you for your compliment. But the motivation to be out there and paint has more to do with the experience of doing it than the result. And of course this particular one was done in perfect weather, in a safe place, with plenty of time in which to do it, while I was in a holiday mood, so it had every chance of turning out OK. I’ve done others in howling wind, where just holding on to the watercolour pad was a mission, and some when the sun was too hot for me to enjoy the process, and worst of all, when in the company of others who got fed up with waiting for me and wanted to go home!
