The Tree and The Mountain
We returned from our holiday in Italy last week which already seems a distant memory.
As an artist the Italian landscape seemed like heaven.
Our journey took us inland from the coastal town of Albenga, travelling up into the Maritime Alps.
I became fascinated with the mountain's, densely populated with trees, it led to me sketching and photographing them everyday.
It has inspired a whole series of paintings and drawings as I try and capture the intensity of the light, the living breathing mass of vegetation and the sheer dramatic beauty of nature.
