Artist Statement

When John Dobbs goes out to paint, he is looking at the interactions of colour and shape and through the accumulation of paint, the drawing finds itself. He works until his energy runs out.

Method of Working

Working in the studio, from drawings and painted studies completed on site, John tries to capture on canvas what is important to him in what he saw in that first sight, as simply and unselfconsciously as possible.
