“March Light at Wicca” is the biggest Stile painting I have ever done and was certainly a challenge in putting the amount of detail I do into a much larger painting. This particular day was quite typical of early March this year, blue skies and hazy warm, (compared to the last throws of Winter) sunshine. The Gorse was out in full yellow bloom and colour was starting to return to nature.
I decided on this particular view and time of capture as I liked the signs of early Spring with the earthy colours and ruggedness of the foliage which I felt gave a balanced structure to the painting. This Hawthorn tree is really typical of this part of West Penwith and Cornwall and gives a real indication to the prevailing wind which, being only a mile or so from the Sea shows its remoteness.
The Original is framed using Ash with a very deep bevel inner white mount and a top mount using Peterboro Conservation Glacier White mount board. Due to its size the glass used is special “Tru-View Ultra View” which has less than 1% reflection, blocks 70% of UV light and allows 98.5% light transmission.
