Artwork Description

“I love painting these alpine slopes that are almost an abstraction of trees and undergrowth. Being out in the high scree slopes in autumn colour with an early snowfall approaching is inspiration enough for a return to the studio. This piece I did from memory from hours of studying the landscape and I try to simplify, producing a unique and powerful statement. The composition I think is strengthened by the angle of view which I don’t see after in painting. Most landscapes are based on a flat horizontal however certain themes can benefit from powerful angles.”
