This place fascinates me. Every time I’ve seen it, it’s covered with people. Normally this would be a real downer but here it’s different. There is an appreciation and an awareness of the landscape here which, unusually, seems to be shared by everyone present.

I’d never normally want to paint a landscape that was as populated as this but in this case civilisation got the better of me.

It’s taken ages to finish this work. I started by using a similar technique to an earlier painting Falls at Reekie Linn but it’s never so simple. The painting cried out for a different approach after a while and I followed this. I wanted to use slightly different physical “laws” of colour than those that are seen in nature, but which could still work together within a legitimate “colour hierarchy” to form the image...... I constantly dream of seeing colours beyond the visible spectrum and this is the nearest I could get to it in this work.
