New Painting: Parys Mountain III

Parys Mountain III (oil on canvas 60cm x 60cm)

This is the third and final painting in the series worked up from plein air sketches of Parys Mountain produced during the Mike Knowles landscape painting week at the beginning of July (see original sketch and reference photo below for comparison).

I decided to really push the contrast of flat colour shapes/planes with the introduction of ‘directional’ mark making in the thick impasto to further suggest space and form.

As a result, the picture surface ended up looking like a tapestry, especially when the light is at the right angle.
