    Artist Statement.
    I showed an early interest in art which led me  to study plein-air (open air) oil painting with Roger Webber, Ernest Buckmaster and Lance McNeill. The raw experience of working (respectively) with them on location brought to the fore my passion for the “freedom of spontaneity” and the rigour of speedily capturing the fleeting glow and illuminating impact of subtle shifts of light across the landscape.


    Herman is a tonal realist who paints in impressionist style. He paints in oils, watercolour, and acrylic media.
