Ideas and Inspirations
Working from his studio in an old watermill on the River Wylye in South Wiltshire, Nick draws inspiration from his immediate landscape. He says: “I have spent much of the past two decades working from this beautiful area, with rivers, ponds, water-meadows and woodland close to where I live and work.
I observe the changes from day to day and season to season. I find it constantly compelling and am attracted in particular by the abstract qualities in the landscape: patterns in the river flow, multi-layering and reflectivity; also the textures, contrasts and depths in the forest and the movement, rhythms and colours of field grasses and plant life. I would like to think that through my paintings I convey a sense of the movement, life and my own ‘solitary involvement’ with this landscape.”
