Artist's description:

I really had to feel my way on this one, though I knew I wanted to explore a more muted palette. I'd been thinking about those heavy rainclouds that hang from the sky, drenching the land below, while at the same time light is still reaching the closer areas. There came a point when I knew I could either commit to adding them, or lose the piece.
Seeing this image for the first time, once I'd decided to stop painting and I'd taken off the edge masking, I fell in love with it! Though a description might make it seem dark and depressing, looking at it I felt a very real sense of viewing a scene on a good walk in the hills, when the rain has passed and the light is returning. I felt as if I was breathing in the cool, clean, fresh air after an upland storm.

I have included a photo showing where paint has crept minutely under the masking.
When I'm painting this vigorously it can happen, and I wanted to be upfront about it. It's not a print, and if I had to deny this painting its life for this small flaw, it would be a sad world!
