"In Crosstown Traffic and In The Heat Of The Night I have played around with the composition bringing the iconic yellow taxi really to the foreground to evoke those larger than life and in your face characteristics so typical of the city. I have used a slightly different, more muted palette for Crosstown Traffic to capture the sense of dusk and dying light."

Neil Dawson

"Being constantly exposed to beautiful, enchanting, strange, evocative, provocative, bewildering environments with the time and mindset to properly appreciate and reflect on them was a defining experience. Whilst travelling, my camera was my artistic outlet as I tried to capture elements of my new, exciting surroundings. As I got home I dusted off the palette and paints in an attempt to recapture some of the sights and feelings from my time abroad. I quickly realised how much I had missed creating art and have not looked back since.

I tend to use photographic references as a starting block for my pictures to help give a basic structure. However, I dont like have too strong an idea of exactly how I want the finished article to look, preferring to work in a intuitive and impromptu way thus giving the painting a free rein to develop and feed off itself. I always start quickly as I dislike staring at a blank canvas and find the early stages of a painting the most exciting and creative. I will block in large areas of colour and tone to give the picture life and energy at an early stage. I dont think there is a right or wrong way to paint, its just whatever works for you.

Personally, I like to build the picture up as a whole, slowly letting the image come into focus rather than working section by section. I also like to use my fingers a lot in the early stages - the versatility and speed with which the paint can be applied encourages me to work freely, energetically and instinctively. The picture will usually take about five or six stages to complete as the layers of oil paint dry, with the process tending to slow down in the finishing stages as I get down from the big and bold to the smaller elements of the
