These abstract landscapes are derived from intricate colour studies of plants, rocks, sea, sand , lichen, soil, moss , weather and light of an area, that show that each place has its own identity . I have included these and photographs, underneath each painting, to show where the inspiration for these paintings originally came from. I love the interaction between colours. They become like a piece of music with some notes soaring above and other bass notes below . Sometimes making what should be a regressive colour,progressive and visa versa.Making colours harmonise or bounce against each other, it is all a glorious game, that mother nature has provided.
