John Waterhouse. Many things inspire me to paint - from walking the fields and woodlands that surround the area where i live, to simply watching people going about their daily lives.
New ideas for paintings constantly enter my head and i note many of them down on paper, so as not to forget them.
When painting a landscape, alot of the information is there, but more often than not something extra needs to be added, or changed slightly. A cloud formation, a distant figure, or perhaps the way the light is falling.
