New Painting: Parys Mountain II

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

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

It continues the series of paintings investigating the use of flat shapes to represent three dimensional space on a two dimensional surface and is another attempt to visually ‘fold’ or ‘buckle’ the painting surface in order to recreate the sensation of standing within the huge space, trying to make sense of the abstract colours and shapes.

It’s painted in impasto oil on stretched canvas using a palette knife to introduce texture.
