Storm & Sunlight, Ullswater
I painted this picture a few years ago when I was working on an exhibition about William Wordsworth for an exhibition at his last home - Rydal Mount, near Ambleside in England's Lake District.
The viewpoint is the spot where William said farewell to his brother John for the last time. Shortly afterwards John's ship foundered and he was drowned. I wanted the painting to convey something of the intensity of feeling that John's death must have brought to William.
This painting is available as a limited edition print from either Masham Gallery or Artfinder.
