Nigel’s landscapes often depict scenes from the Welsh marches. Places with a personal story. He starts a painting plein air,  out in the open landscape. He begins with drawing and redrawing his subject to get the feel of. the place. Nigel works the changing layered canvas intuitively relating to the painted surface. Overtime an internal dialogue with the image develops and this can be developed on sight or back in the studio. 
When painting a common theme that is explored relates to the passage of time:- tides changing, clouds breaking, ancient hill forts, memorial seats. 
His work tries to reflect these emotive observations by applying paint in an expressive painterly manner. Nigel’s paintings are realistic and observed yet the departure from realism is also clear with changes in colour, light, temperature, gesture and expression to hold onto more of his lived psychological 

experience of being there immersed in the place. 
Nigel regularly exhibits in galleries in and around the region, he has undertaken commissions and his work is in private collections across the UK.
