The influence of a lifetime retouching photographs and airbrush illustrations has resulted in him painting in a photo realistic style, but are unmistakably oil paintings. The paintings are photographed in daylight conditions,using an SLR digital camera, the images are printed onto FibaPrint White Semi-Matte 300gsm Photo paper using Epson Lightfast inks with a guaranteed 50 year life in natural conditions, i.e. away from direct sunlight and harsh interior lighting. The images are centred on 19x13 inch paper with an approximate 1 inch border both sides allowing the image maximum use of the paper.
