emerging style is an individual one with a confidence in his chosen medium. But when too much detail creeps in as in the Aberdeen portraits of Carolyn and Jenny. the painting falls apart.

The smaller works. less self-conscious. some painted on the spot in Turkey. are full of spontaneous colour which is translated to the best of the large paintings. particularly Sam And The Marmara Sea. On one small board. the oils take on the shallow green of the Mediterranean and two blobs of colour translate the warmth of two men greeting on the beach.
