Number three in the larger "lumen" series in which I explore landscape and the effect of light at different times of the day. I think that working in this series has made me understand what I am trying to produce in my paintings - a sensitivity (not always achieved!); a nod to the beauty of nature; a sense of "air" or ethereality; a discovery of surface pattern and the effects of light on this.
Do you work in series? What do you gain from it?
