The Great Buddha of Kamakura in Japan. A beautiful site to see, so peaceful and tranquil.
The painting was initially going to be a sky with clouds, I then started adding mountains using my trusty palette knife.
I was guided by the textured marks I randomly put on the canvas to create this image. I like the subtlety of colours coming through the dark grey shadows.
This original painting will be for sale in the Dunfermline Art Club Exhibition, 26 June – 5 July 2017 in the Kingsgate.
I felt inspired to paint a landscape with the Scottish Highlands and Iceland in mind.
