Painter of Fine art Landscapes
Michaels paintings leave an unforgettable feeling in the viewer. The processes he uses to create his paintings are highly intuitive. Using fine hard wood panels like Kauri and Rimu, and applying layers of paint, he gradually builds up his panel from a deep sienna foundation to transparent, yet luminous shadows till finally rendering his lightest oil colours in delicate glazes. With oil paint, Michael conveys his deepest inner vision through the vehicle of landscape painting, a process that begins wih nature and ends with a revealing expression of nature.
