Artist's description:

The title of this painting has a double meaning as Uplands also refers to the area of Swansea in the background of this painting as well as being upland from the beach, up the snaking road from Bryn y Mor. I loved painting the variety of colours in this painting, all the sudden spring colours of April. The lime and blue greens, purples and burgundies of newly sprouting leaves on various types of trees, the light pinks and oranges of fragile, floating cherry blossoms. Swansea is a leafy city and trees sprawl across the many sea facing hills of Swansea. I tried to contrast this light, fragile, often transient colouring with the that of the more concentrated, weighty, more permanent huddled terracotta houses and in turn with the sandy changeability of the sandy beach and wispy blue and white of the sea.
