The ultimate challenge presented by Nature to the artist is to capture and interpret in his or her own style the character of a particular 9% region. To do this successfully requires an understanding and appreciation of the correct rendering of colour and the way it is influenced by the quality of light. I believe a 'sense of place' is important, and whilst accepting that the urge to shock can sometimes produce exciting discords, a landscape painting should leave the viewer with no doubts as to where, when and under what conditions it was created. 123pp. Size: 8vo Imperial (11" x 7½" approx.)
