Birrell doesn't paint directly on the spot or from photographs, but improvises the essential memory of a place within the comfort of his studio. Aspects that attract him are harbours and their bric-a-brac, as well as mills and castles. Typical Birell paintings show clear and well-constructed composition with contrasting colours creating areas of light and shade, drawing the eyes into thescene.

I purchased two of these prints to hang in our new loft bedroom and I'm very pleased with how they look. They add welcome colour and interest to the room. The quality of the prints and framing is excellent and the price competitive.
