Upcountry from Redruth (
http://hendersonsmith.co.uk/upcountry_from_redruth.html ). Layers of landscape intrigue me. It’s something about the counterpoint of shapes they provide. Clustered houses here climb the foreground hill; wind-turbines lie beyond, something a little unexpected in a landscape painting, signs of change. There are distant blue hills. Upward progression becomes movement into space, an invitation to enjoy that magic of painting whereby surface interaction and exploration into depth occur together.
