Patchwork hillside and mackeral sky

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015













Patchwork hillside and mackeral sky ( ) is a canvas that uses the near and far principle as in Near and far, Mawgan Porth and Village evening among others. In this case you could say that above and below, the cloud forms and the dark field boundaries, replace the correspondence of near and far.

On the other hand warmer foreground and cooler background colours highlight differences between the two areas. Such a push and pull is so necessary for the sense of energy that I want to create even amidst the tranquillity of a village evening.
