The Sky

When painting a landscape, I always start with the sky. The sky influences everything beneath it. It determines the mood of the landscape, whether sad or happy, sparkling or wistful.

Colour

The colours I mix for the sky I retain in my brushes, only deepening them in tones for the shadows across mountains or the dancing lights on water.

Even the leaves of trees have a reflection of the sky colour. This unity of sky and landscape underlies a far deeper unity in nature.
