Oil paint, it is luscious and luxurious.
Painting in oil is one of the most engaging and timeless of artforms. In this increasingly digital age, it’s organic nature can thrill us, calm us and adorn our lives whatsoever the image captures; our loved ones or the world about us.
I am a self-taught artist, Irish, and living in London, England.
My journey into painting has been through the idiom of still life and a period of intense study along the lines of traditional painting (archive.org is an endlessly rich source of old texts).
I didn’t always paint – my chosen path for many years was that of sound recording engineer, an art form that manipulates sound in a way strangely similar to how a painter manipulates the visual world. It’s good to go from one to the other.
