Last Light of Day
Oil on Board, 122 x 34 cms, 48 x 13 inches
As with the majority of my landscape paintings, this is based from memory of a flood plain just outside of Henfield in Sussex, UK, on one of my favourite walks. It does not matter what I am doing, as an artist, I find inspiration everywhere and some images just lodge themselves in my mind. I love colour and am very affected by light as it changes during the day. At sunrise and sunset, the changes in light affect the colours within the landscape.
This oil painting is inspired by the fading light of the day at sunset and twilight. It changes the colours of the flowers making them slightly duller. This is a painting of an Anenome flower that is at the end of its life too, and is also fading, so that the title of the painting is a metaphor for the flower as well as being descriptive of the landscape. The Anenome is releasing the last of its pollen to a bumble bee which is having the final feed of the day before it returns to the nest.
