My motivation in painting and drawing is to convey a familiar image to the  
viewer and yet leave enough unsaid to arouse curiosity and interest. The  
viewer may feel the general mood, impression and image my painting reveals.
generally have no preconceived idea or formulated plan. When I begin to
paint, my painting begins by rapidly composing shapes on the canvas using a
large brush. Painting begins by rapidly composing shapes on the canvas using
a large brush.Areas of colour texture and movement and unity, all non
essential labouring of details are avoided. I’m mainly inspired by the Natural
and other sources of light effects.
