Living in Brussels for the last seven years has provided me with inspiration for creating these images of the city. The aspects that I like the best and feel are most representative of the area are shown here: trams, characteristic houses, high doors and doorways, bikes leaning against lamp posts and the tall beech trees in the forest. Colour in these paintings is a vital indgredient for me, and the in tense tropical hues of Indonesia, where I lived for many years, still exerts a strong influence. I have gained a flexibility, colour and freshness of outlook by using the ‘Brushes’ iPad application – using the tablet is spontaneous and instinctive, I find that it is a fresh new dynamic medium for painting.
