Artwork description:

Hill 17 is a nighttime coastal scene. A full moon is seen over a quiet bay leading out to open sea. There is a bank of trees in the foreground.
Its a dark indigo colour brushed out to reveal its blue tones.

The hillside section features the artists' technique of delicately scratching out the watercolour to make the tree branches.

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 watercolour set Gillies picked up in Tokyo and has been working with for his most recent paintings.
