13 05 06. and the sun is shining, everything looks clean washed, and so I feel a joyous spring urge for clear colour in the clear air, a willow against a bright sky

13 04 30. Today I feel that I am getting on with El Greco's Tor.  This is what I see from my window, the shining town of white houses around Glastonbury Tor. Sometimes there are storms: this sky came from Toledo. it has been painted in oil  on  a large 164x131cms canvas, & paint using flake white, ivory black, alizarin crimson, prussian blue, lemon yellow and yellow ochre.

Homage to Caspar David Freidrich
