Colour Sketches

"As soon as possible after returning from location drawing I produce small, quick sketches in oil, done on any available ground. This not only serves to aid my memory but it starts the process of transition towards a finished work. In these sketches I begin to resolve aspects of composition, colour and tone.

Like my sketchbook work, these are such an important aspect of my process that I consider them art works in their own right."
