A beautiful atmospheric painting showing how bright sunlight can affect a scene, picking out certain areas and loosing others in deep shadow, using extraordinary colours as it highlights different aspects and corners.
This painting, after a painting by Edward Seago, is a study of the immense dramatic skies we experienced on our recent visit to Norfolk. I have changed a few of the details to suit my own “take” on the sky, mine has many very subtle changes especially in the darks, which have not really been picked up by the photogragh.
I cannot begin to describe the amount of fun I had whilst painting this picture after Piper! Painted on an extremely rough surface, it was one of those paintings that almost painted itself, and I have the intention to paint more in a similar style using the Maltese rocks as inspiration.
Painting this in an extremely free and expressive manner, it is a response to a friend’s wild area of garden, the exuberant growth and spectacular colours shine through all the variety of mark making techniques.
