Wonderful quietude and simplicity; great subtlety of colour, making much out of little. 'Less is more'.

A fine feeling for abstraction and the countryside in pattern and colour. A true sense of abstraction which is very difficult to achieve.

Masterful in its economy, its assurance and its picture quality. Simplicity personified.
