Night and Day is the second in the Heartland Watercolours series. When I was still deciding what style and medium I'd like to work in (you can read more about this in How I got to the place I'm in now) I created quite a nice picture in wax pastels. It showed a few of the red flowers you're now becoming familiar with placed in a pink and orange jug. I just did a few lines that curved kind of up in the middle and down towards the sides to convey some sort of surface that the jug was standing on. I didn't think much more about it, felt quite pleased with the picture, that was about it. But then my sister, who sometimes makes unusual connections when she sees things, said, 'that looks a bit like the jug is standing on a hill!' Well, she was right, and it gave me the idea for this painting - a lovely big jug of flowers on the top of a hill! I really enjoyed this one. It was great drawing things on a strange scale. You see the over-sized jug and flowers and then tucked into the hillside is a little house, puffing out the pink smoke that makes the clouds. Don't ask me why, it's just the way it came out of me. With these pictures I feel like my hand is just pouring out the stuff of my soul. And the title came naturally once the colours had found their places. Hope you like it!
