Paul works mostly from memory - the scent of a flower, a landscape absorbed while walking or the reflection of experience.
Recently, not far from home in the corner of a field, Paul heard a skylark, its high frequency song demanding his attention - he is moved. It has made an impression on him which he finds hard to explain - he may not actually paint the skylark but there is a good chance that the memory of that encounter will appear in a painting in the form of a brush stroke, a mark made in graphite or a scratch of the palette knife and it is this distilling of things that make up Paul's practice.
