I’ve become very interested in a tonalist approach to painting, and to be honest, I feel I’ve been applying many of it’s philosophies throughout my time painting. As much as I love detail sometimes, the pure bliss of laying colours down this way really appeals to me. The work of the American Landscape master George Inness has really knocked me on my bum. The guy was incredible, a fellow Taurus and more importantly, a truth seeker, a seeker of life’s mysteries… his work and his unique approach to life really moves me. I expect to be making a lot of paintings in this manner in the future.

I’ve been tinkering with this one I began working on a few years ago and shelved it for reasons I wasn’t quite sure of at the time, I suspect it was because I didn’t have the skill to match my ambition. Not sure I’m ready now but I do feel up to the challenge…
