"I wanted to refine my painting technique and to achieve this I felt I would need a smoother surface to work on, than I had previously been using; so I began creating my own wood panels. I began with a bare wood panel, onto which I applied between 6 to 8 layers of gesso primer, and then sanded it down between each coat. When I began 'Dreams Are Made Of This' I quickly learnt that due to the smoothness of the wood, applied paint simply slid off the wooden surface. Consequently I applied more layers of paint and learnt a lot that I have carried over to new works. Another major change you will notice with this painting is the direction of the light source as the sun is now shining from the front which gives the style a whole new look.

Nearly every square inch of this painting has so many small touches that just weren't there on earlier works. As with all my paintings, I have no colour sketch to work to, it just all happens once, this painting simply became a real feast of colour theory. I start the painting and that gives me the freedom to experiment and it's helped me to keep improving with each new work."

Paul Corfield

"Living in Poole, Dorset, means that I live only a few minutes from the countryside and only a few minutes from the sea so they will always be a feature in my paintings. The Dorset landscape is an area of great beauty and an obvious source of inspiration. Whenever possible I'll take the family off to the countryside to explore nature; it's something I always did as a child. My children are also an indirect source of inspiration as the programmes they like to watch on TV are great fun. The rolling landscapes in shows like Postman Pat, Bob The Builder and many more look so idyllic, they got me to see the world through a child's eyes.
I remember as a child that the Mr Men books were my absolute favourite and they also had those rolling hills, little cottages etc. At the other end of the scale I am inspired by paintings with good brushwork; I love traditional oil painting techniques.
