Artwork description:

Hill 11 is a forest scene painted in a deep indigo blue colour.
It has a somewhat Nordic feel to it, like an illustration from a fairytale book.
A forested valley with a river in the center, or perhaps banks of snow. The painting has a dreamy feel to it.

The square format is turned to hang like a diamond, and on a flat white background, the artist has painted a circle of indigo tone. This has been delicately scratched out to create the trees.

The painting is finished with a coating of clear resin.
Gillies uses resin as his prefered finish as it distributes light in a way glass or varnish cant. It also has an effect on the intensity of the colour of the paint, Gillies likes the way this works on the watercolour paint, it also protects and seals the painting.

The Japanese Forest Collection was inspired by a winter spent in Japan exploring the beautiful landscape and forests. These paintings are produced with a watercolor set Gillies picked up in Tokyo and has been working with for his most recent paintings.
