I posted about Piccadilly Valley earlier this week. My previous sessions there were about three years ago. The vines were just starting to turn to yellow. Here is the painting, which sold soon afterwards.

While I was searching through some images this one turned up. I was struck by the similarity to the one above.

The light, the colour and the mood of the two paintings are quite dissimilar, but it is strange how the compositions mirror each other.

We are not exactly blessed with high mountains in this part of South Australia. Perhaps these two paintings are an outcome of that reality. It looks as though I am drawn to hillsides.
