Eventide, Good, Falling Quickly.

Berwick Bay, Late Evening. Oil on board, 91cm x 61cm.

Last year we had a long look around the Symbolist Landscape exhibition in Edinburgh, which was uniformly brilliant. There were so many atmospheric evening and twilight paintings, particularly Riddarfjarden by Eugene Janssen, which I was mesmerised by. Two paintings came out of this, of which this was the second and the more problematic. Took me a long time to get it to the point I was reasonably happy with it.
