Much of my work is about colour and light; canvases layered — colour upon colour, layer upon layer. In nature nothing is ever really just green, just blue, just brown but a multiplicity of colours dancing off the surface to the tune of a different light, a different angle.
THE LULL is a reflection upon the intensity of colour just before a storm when there is an almost psychedelic vista - dark trees with vivid oranges and reds against an indigo sky and irridescent lime green grass. This painting captures a moment as the sun hits some dried and dying reeds turning them into gold blades fighting with the upcoming winds while the mallard swims purposefully to his mate and to shelter.
