Paul paints with compulsion, subtly influenced by his environment and daily experiences. Hedley is technically gifted as a painter and draughtsman.
His paintings and drawings show a fine skill particularly in producing figurative studies of enduring compositions. He successfully captures a fleeting moment of time and the associated feeling. Paul prefers to create his art work in natural light, using sketches and photographs.
The process begins with numerous preliminary sketches which eventually leads to the application of tone and colour. His drawings are produced in a ‘classical’ manner on a toned ground in chalks often combined with watercolour and gouache.
