"The disciplines of my comic-strip work, with the need for narrative and careful composition, perhaps complements my oil painting and makes me approach a portrait in a more dynamic and economical way. I am particularly interested in the ‘square brush technique’ as used by The Newlyn School of Painters and Henry La Thangue."
