An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.

I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to.

The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Paul Corvers.

“I generally start from a concrete idea. This idea is usually connected to things that I am working on or that keep me busy, and is often landscape related. My inspiration is frequently sparked by little pencil sketches — often not much bigger than a matchbox — based on observations that I have made in the countryside. I also make sketches from photos I have taken. Sometimes it is a combination of these things. There are many of such little drawings in my studio. I often flick through them when I want to start working on a new painting. Once I am working, I let myself be influenced by what happens; the next steps usually present themselves automatically. If not, then I just give it some time.” PC quote Studio Critical.
