Robin visits the South West several times a year to paint as this area provides much subject material and inspiration. The strong light and shade is the basis of his compositions and he captures the essence of this area completely. He says, Clear light and cliff edges provide me with contrasts between land and sea high cliffs towering over sheltered coves and cool shadows alongside warm light. Cornwall is often the subject of my work. I use a brush to block out the main shapes and background colours, then work over the top with a palette knife, applying thin layers to the dark areas and strong impasto strokes to the highlights.
