"Erudgere Lane runs in the base of the valley and just below the foreground in this painting. I have been looking at and painting these hills for 20 years or so. There are so many different colours and light in familiar landscapes like this one. The morning light in this painting was breaking through early cloud and mist. I have attempted to paint this scene expressively in colour and quite quickly so that both the brushstrokes and colour replicate the transience of the light. I still paint these same hills but have not seen a similar light since".
