"Halcyon Forest" was inspired by some lovely woods near my home in the Peak District where sunlight filters through the trees creating shadows over the forest floor. I have used bright tones of copper and turquoise for this painting as I love these colours. Turquoise is thought to bring wisdom, tranquillity, protection, good fortune, and hope and is revered in many cultures. For myself, I found it very calming to create this painting and the copper tones have an iridescent quality to them.
