My favourite thing to paint has always been natural landscapes and so I decided to challenge myself by adding reflections and a more muted colour scheme, so that the piece had a more mellow feel. My favourite part of the painting was a last-minute addition – the yellow splatters across the path to which I added tiny green stems to give the illusion of a scattering of wild flowers.

This piece is quite typical of my work – it began simply, with a limited colour scheme and basic shape construction, before developing into a painting showcasing all colours of the spectrum, but in a relatively subtle way. This composition spawned a series of similar mountain landscape paintings which are some of my personal favourites.

This painting was a small experimental piece I did that measures only around 20x20cm. At the time I was creating a small body of work featuring mountains because I love the layers they can give to a piece. Channelling my inner Kurt Jackson, I splattered vibrant colours over the top to bring the attention to the front and away from the hazier backdrop.
