Paintings of L'Avenc

 

On a recent visit to the Collsacabra in Spain, I was fascinated by its extraordinary landscape and I returned the following year to draw and explore the area further. I was particularly intrigued by the power of the vertiginous drops, which contrast with the lush peacefulness of the cliff top meadows. The rising morning mists and unexpected views of the landscape from above gave me new ideas of translating the energy of the landscape into shape and colour. Later I exhibited the paintings in Tavertet, near Barcelona.
