These images will stir within the viewer impressions and personal memories of locations in a variety of climes, some watery and local, others exuding the heat of warmer berths.

Tight compositions are used to remove surrounding visual distractions - there is a lot going on in a busy boatyard. By careful selection of viewpoint Paul cuts out the clutter in order to create simple bold compositions which carry the essence of the subject.

There is playful juxtaposition of curved and straight lines, strong and muted colours, flat and textured surfaces and positive and negative shape.
