This painting ( http://hendersonsmith.co.uk/summer_evening_corner_of_st_columb.html ) grew out of wandering within earshot of one of a series of chamber music evenings given by Harmonimusik, an ensemble that visits us here in St Columb every summer. I’d been able to attend an earlier concert in the series but  this time I had been looking after a display of my paintings nearby beforehand and would return there during the interval to meet browsers. The resonance here was clearly related to the music I could distantly hear. In this painting I therefore aimed to let the interlocking planes of stone and hanging slate, gable-ends and roof sections sing together through colour and pattern.
