One of the things I love about walking in the evening, is the way the colour of the landscape changes with the light. On those days when you get a fantastically red sunset, if you walk away from the setting sun, you’ll see the landscape glowing. On one such walk through the heathers, the rose-tinted light made the whole moorland turn an incredible russet colour. it was quite spectacular. The next time you’re out looking at the sunset, look over your shoulder and see the colour of the landscape behind you.

I have used a layers of acrylic paints, with water colour and oil pastels, and made lots of scratching marks to reveal splashes of colour from below. The piece is finished with self-levelling gel and cold wax.
