J. Richard Plincke: My approach to Painting: I have drawn and painted since childhood, encouraged later by inspired tuition at school. At present, I am concentrating on watercolour and mixed media, using gouache, acrylic and occasional swipes in oil pastel.

Work varies from semi- Impressionism at one end of the scale, exemplified perhaps by " Abandoned Chalk pit ", to more adventurous compositions at the other - such as paintings as Allotment and Dockyard.

In most of my current work, I derive ideas from my sketchbooks, which I often carry with me, especially when on holiday; using such sketches as a basis for paintings gives more freedom for adventurous treatment of tone and colour. I believe it is more important to " interpret " the wonderful visual world around us than to slavishly record the subject matter in all its detail.
