Paul Corfield works from his home studio in the heart of the Dorset countryside. “Just the sound of the blackbird singings nearby is all I need” he says. “For a landscape painter, the sunrise and sunset offer up the most potential to create a successful painting. This is because of the long shadows, warm light and wide range on contrast.”
He first produces a small sketch – around 5-10cm – as a simple line drawing with no shading. He looks for an arrangement of shapes which will eventually fall into place.
The colours evolve once he starts to paint the sky, with his main interest being how he can play with the light to evoke the viewer’s emotions.
“My paintings are a visual experience. After all, a painting is there to be looked at – not read.”
