There are all sorts of things that influence me when I'm choosing the colours I am going to work with. The influence behind this painting was the planning for one of my workshops where I was wanting to use some contrasting / warm / cold colours for people to experiment with. I was drawn to a number of already mixed greys which is quite unusual for me as I do tend to want to mix my own greys generally but these lilac / blue / greys in this painting really got my attention and have worked so well with the Senellier Chinese Orange.

I have been using Arches Huille paper since I first started using oil and cold wax and I love it! But I really wanted to scale up and see what could be achieved on a larger scale using the paper and oil and cold wax. The valley trembles is my first large scale painting using oil and cold wax on paper.
