After presenting the news for China’s state broadcaster, I returned to my home town of Cheltenham with an urge to pick up the paint brush again. This series of paintings (2012-2013) is the result.
Beijing’s pervasive and unrelenting smog is my theme.
Landscapes are my starting point.
And then the smog takes hold.
Each painting evolves, often re-worked with new layers.
The end is never planned.
They are studies in smog — Chinese-style.
