Paintings by Michael Bennallack Hart
This website contains some of the paintings I've done since 1998: the result of travels around Britain, Italy, Ireland and the United States.
As a general rule, I let the sensation of the subject tell me how to make the painting. I don't work to a formula, because I feel that each landscape has its own character. Quite often, it can take days, weeks, months, or in some cases, years, before I know how to approach the work.
As time goes by, I'm able to draw on an ever increasing fund of memories, feelings and experience to help with creating the atmosphere in a painting.
I hope that these pictures will give you as much pleasure as I took in their making.
