"..............be honest it’s always the light………It enhances form, colour, detail…….on the landscape…..on an object in the landscape…….contrasted against its’ surroundings………in a Rembrandt or a Vermeer……in the garden…….dappled light……early morning, late evening…….winter…..summer. 

I love paintings where the artist understands this…….. because in part it evokes an emotional response……it tells a truth……..it goes beyond a diagram or coloured drawing……..it replicates a reality ……..it’s an image captured at a precise moment, neither before or after……at a vital moment when the light moves across the subject in such a way that it compels the artist to paint.
