My painting is concerned with expressing the mystery and power of the wilder aspects of the landscape which we're all part of

There's no difference between nature outside us and nature inside us.
In my painting I've been attempting to express the silent dialogue between light and dark. We all live somewhere between lightness and darkness. Constable said that landscape was just another word for feeling. I'm trying to communicate these mood swings of the 'uplandscapes' of Snowdonia through cloud-shadow flaring, wavering, interfolding and gesturing - the rhythms informing the shapes on the slopes. The uplands are full of wind and light working off one another, a constant flux of light and shadow.
