When I go for walks in the vale of Strathmore, where I live, I often find it fascinating how dark clouds can accumulate in one area, and the sun is still shining not far away. The light created by this juxtaposition is spectacular, an impressive backdrop to the changing colours of the fields, depending on the time of year. In this painting I’ve tried to recreate these colours.
