On Windswept Hills, oil and enamel on canvas 200 x 120 x 2 cm on two panels each measuring 100 x 120 x 2 cm. On Windswept Hills, with blue stormy skies, the wind blows wild and fierce, over flowering Heather. A carpet of pink, defiant of the wind, raises up its blooms and celebrates the chaos.
Pink fronds of Heather scatter the ground, turning barren green hills to blush. I love this moorland where biting cold stings my cheeks. I feel rooted here in this landscape, of purple pink heather and turbulent skies. I have created On Windswept Hills in an expressionist style to convey the movement of the wind and suggest stormy skies. Strands of gold paint catch light in the painting and create depth and movement. Textured, palette knifed petals and leaves create focus in the expressionist artwork. It reminds me of Scotland and the Yorkshire Moors in England. Wuthering Heights and Heathcliff. On Windswept Hills.
