Tropical Pictures by Terry Johnson Become Reproduction Giclee Paintings

These tropical pictures, which have taken on new life as reproduction giclee prints, have been chosen from the most popular of Terry's paintings.

Speaking about the inspiration for his work and his working methods, Terry says, "My work explores styles that tend to use some realism, such as background, perspective, directional light and so forth. But from here my own aesthetics and imagination take the work to another dimension, which uses abstraction, texture, patterns and exaggerated colours.

I like to create work that elicits emotions of a surreal and dreamlike state of mind, a softness of edges, space and, of late, nostalgic use of colours".

"Some of my favourite techniques are sanding back the surface of my painting, scraping into a painted surface and the addition of gold and silver leaf to construct interesting metallic patinas.

I am a colourist and love it. To me, colour in a painting is like a sunny day or a friend's smile."
