Hatton Rock was the inspiration behind this painting that I titled 'Lilac Fields' as I was struck by the beautiful pale violet tone across the fields as well as the low cloud formations. It was early evening and after a warm summer's days in June the colours were incredible with the ochre of the dry soil and lemon yellows, viridians and apple greens in the foreground. I used a generous amount of my favourite colour in this painting which is Vert Paulo Veronese by Wallace Seymour. It is the emerald green that you can see in the middle ground of the painting and complements the violet hues so beautifully. I only use Wallace Seymour paints because they are made with highest quality pigment to provide the most vibrant colours. The paint dries to a permanent and flexible film and is then varnished to preserve and protect the painting.
