Street Scenes and People Paintings

These works are all painted in oils. I use a direct painting style, or wet in wet style for the most part. Artistic inspiration for these comes from life experience, living in London England for a 6 year period, and travelling in Europe. These paintings pre-date my landscape paintings. On the early works page you will see some of my first paintings, including my very first painting.

Many of these paintings as well as several of the early works exhibit a strong emotional expressionist quality.
