As Lesley says "Composition, planning and judging tonal values are skills that have become more important to me in recent years". Lesley Brooks is a painter's painter: Bold colours, risky compositions and a delicate touch. "An artful risk taken can result in a bigger gain . . . a bold gesture or a sensitive brushstroke can yield an amazing outcome in paint"
