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 returned this print immediately upon receipt because the colour printing was of such poor quality. Everything was too red and harsh compared to the original colour. Sadly I wont be ordering anything else from this company unless they can improve their colour printing.
