Sunny Day on Parys Mountain

‘Sunny Day on Parys Mountain’ – Abstracted/Fragmented Geometric Landscape Painting. Oil on Canvas. Unframed dims (HxW): 61x61cm / 24.1×24.1in. Supplied Unframed/Ready to Hang


This is my latest painting which was worked up from a plein air sketch produced during the Mike Knowles landscape painting week at the beginning of the month.

In it, I am seeking to recreate the memory of the dazzling array of colours on show, as well as the feeling of distance and space in the huge, man-made quarry.

By returning once again to using flat shapes, I’m continuing to investigate and attempting to highlight the contradictions inherent in representing such a vast scene on a flat surface with only the thickness of the paint to differentiate between the ‘figure’ and ‘ground’.

During the workshop, Mike had suggested I look into the work of Nicolas de Stael and so I experimented with laying heavy impasto paint on with a palette knife when reworking this piece.
