Garry’s focus is on the British Isles. For the main, remote places, the flatness of East Anglia to the Highlands of Scotland and all that is in between.
“I paint in situ, small oil paintings on panels that I use as reference for the larger canvas’ that I develop in my studio. I have naturally no interest whatsoever in ipads, programs or projections, my paintings are made or informed by looking at historical paintings and technique. I make my own paints and each painting is made layering thin washes of oil and glaze techniques. I try to create atmosphere and accuracy of subject matter.
My aim continues to be much the same as it ever was, to make the best possible paintings that I can, being sensitive, respectful and open to painting and the landscapes that I am working within.”
