This painting is inspired by the rolling hills near my home and was commenced on location with en plein air charcoal sketches. The painting was completed in my studio during winter 2021 at a time when I was longing for warmer weather and the spaciousness of post lockdown life. The gentle summer palette reflects the hills glowing with light as the sun rises, a time of calm and reflection. Gates and tracks have become a familiar motif in my work, an invitation to enter and explore the unknown.
