Well this artist doesn't do his own work justice in his description, I will try and make up for that. What does intrigue me is the way the work 'pulls in' the eye, there is more in the painting than first glance tells you. I have chosen this painting here, 'Woman Wearing Gold & Jewels', because of that very reason, I kept going back to the work and each time spotted something new. What I can say is that Martin paints using vibrant colour, cleverly letting the tones and hues blend to perfection, some of the work is set on a dark background, even these use content to draw you in. I like the work, it does what it is supposed to do, get you looking, and that can't be bad. Excellent work well presented.
