Professor David Webb

The above painting of Llandeilo has sold this month. It was one of my biggest paintings.

I listened to Professor David Webb talking about pictorial cognition  a few weeks ago. I found it very interesting.  Basically it is all about how and why we react emotionally to different images or specifically in this case paintings. Quite important for an artist.  He is undertaking research at the present and although it is believed pictorial cognition is a development of a more primitive system we don't really know why different people are stimulated differently by paintings.

At the end of the day I will continue to paint what I like and how I see things.
