In this painting the vivid green and yellow sweeps across the foreground and then up both sides of the canvas. With some of my semi abstract work I like to suggest the form of something, rather than depict it fully. This leaves room for the viewer’s imagination to work and our imaginations, afterall, are one of the most precious things we have.

A customer asked if I could paint a similar version of the modern art green tree painting he had seen online. Every painting I do is unique but, when requested, I try to create a similar painting to one that a customer has seen. I particulary enjoy painting these semi-abstract trees with the multi-coloured grass at the base, the wide tree trunk and then the leaf section where I energetically splash and drip a lot of paint on to the canvas.

I like to experiment with different backgrounds to some of my abstract and semi-abstract landscapes and flower paintings. I initially painted a much smaller version of this painting and a customer asked whether it would be possible for me to paint it on to a much larger canvas. The customer was looking for a very large painting that would work with the red and brown shades that he has in his room. There are always differences when you scale up a painting is this way but overall I am very happy with the finished artwork.

My semi abstract Autumn tree painting is one of my most popular at the moment. I paint such pieces in both portrait and landscape orientation. I used a lot of orange in this painting and I think that it may be my favourite colour! Orange seems to have an appealing mix of both vibrancy and calmness at the same time.

I experiment with different combinations of flower colours for this style of semi abstract flower painting. I find that predominantly red flowers works very well, but I always like to add small amounts of other colours to the flower part of the painting too, even when a particular colour dominates. I also like to use more than one shade of red when painting this sort of modern art poppy painting.

This was a commission I undertook for a friend in south London. He wanted a bright and colourful modern art painting for his open plan kitchen. Once stretched on to the wooden support frame this painting measured approximately 150 x 100 cm. In order to work with the colour scheme in the kitchen, my friend asked that I avoided using much red paint. I substituted red in the composition for additional orange, pink and black, as well as the many other colours that normally go in to a painting such as this.

My paintings are often very colourful but sometimes I like to reduce the palette of colours right down. This is an example of a painting where I have done just that, reducing the colours to just black and white, plus some shades of grey. The canvas was painted completely black first of all and then I applied the layers of grey and white paint. It’s a very energetic and expressive way of painting, splashing, dripping and flicking the paint on.

I like to paint a combination of semi-abstract and completely abstract paintings. This is one of my completely abstract canvases. It’s all about colour and energy, with the paint being rapidly applied to the surface of the canvas. Its quite a messy way of painting! I like the way these paintings are quite decorative and work well when displayed in an office environment, as well as in a customer’s home.
