The Orchestra

The Orchestra is a large oil painting on canvas, which I formed from amalgamating over a hundred photographs, preliminary pencil and I-Pad drawings of the Sheffield University Orchestras.

Drawing is central to my art practice; it is through drawing that one can form the technical basis to realising your imagination. Like many of my works, The Orchestra is constructed using the Flemish technique of painting – where many thin layers of paint build up to create the perception of depth and realism.
