Summer painting. oil on board. 120x120cm.
There is too much information to be had looking. Or so much that it is necessary to pare it down or include it all. We have different approaches to this. Landscape painting is all of this and more. The image formed on the surface is a distillation of that formed on the retina and the subconscious, an interplay of decisions made and experience, perception and interpretation.
After making drawings of a part of my garden I turned my back on it and felt my way into the painting.
