This "refractionist", expressionist oil painting is of Cannisland Woods in Gower Peninsula, heading towards Parkmill. It is Spring and the bright clear light penetrates deep into the Ivy-wrapped pinewood to illuminate a kaleidoscope of colours barely visible from outside the wood. This is the joy of these woods; how they become draped in such beautiful colours when the light gets breaks through. What looks, at first, dark and dank, is transformed into a joyous medley of colour in seconds.
