This piece came together very quickly and was great fun to do. I was supposed to be doing other things really and I wasn’t due to start it until next week but I got the urge and I didn’t stop until it was finished (about midnight). I started by trying to get the basic shape of the hill; I really wanted to nail the strange shaped top and Google Earth became my friend in getting the right angle. Next came the sunset and once I was happy with that, I knew what colours the landscape had to be. Of course I ramped the colours up a bit, after all this is art, however I am quietly confident that at one moment in the history of time Roseberry Topping (now owned by the National Trust) has been as colourful as this.
