In this latest work by James Watkins - the first of a new series - we see the exciting introduction of cadmium yellow to a familiar palette, perfected and favoured by the artist. The inclusion and exploration of this colour creates a sense of internal illumination and warmth emanating from within the painting. The word heartfelt comes to mind.

The rendition of the multi-faceted sky in this painting relates to Michael Smither's observation of a work in progress and his suggestion that not only the landscape, but the sky too, be depicted from a cubist perspective. The artist's signature trees and fence posts remain.
