With this painting I wanted to do something a little different, something that I had done with the seascape work and wanted to see if it would translate. I like working in this way very much, it takes a little time as ideas and inspirations need to come, answers to riddles almost and ways how to gel things together. It is divided for me in 2 sections, 1 of a type of design that I structured in the seascape work after experimentation, the other the actual image. The actual image I want to capture the essence of the highlands, but within that a combination of expression and realism again somehow gelled together. The whole thing must fit together. perhaps, after saying all of this, I won’t comment on any of the images, just to see how I made it.
