Landscapes Re-imagined

No. 1

This is a series of landscapes through a lens of colour in my head. The day I did the sketches for them it was a pretty driech (dull, miserable) Scottish day in Glenshee. Once I got back to the studio to paint, I decided I wanted to inject bright hues into the views and so chose a bright palette of colours.

These winding views are certainly inspired by David Hockney’s paintings of the Yorkshire landscape local to him. I saw some of those paintings of his at his retrospective exhibition at The Royal Academy back in 2012.

I used a much more limited palette, however, as I wanted to accentuate three of the colours most visible in the Highlands on the hills – when everything is not covered in snow, that is!
