' Ground Truth ' - Oil on Canvas - 1200mm x 300mm approx - Brush and palette knife. This private commission brought about its own challenges; not least, when is a landscape not a landscape? Some see an approaching storm over a small island, and others seas calm reflection from a lakeside forest as night draws in. There are others that are content with the vivid abstract as it stands. Ground truth is the visual recognition of an unusual weather event, so you can make up your own mind.
