A favourite and familiar view from a high terrace across the harbour to the opposite headland. As I was painting it I felt I was following different paths, rediscovering the landscape, and hope the viewer will enjoy the adventure. Set against a brilliant sea, the Spring foliage and strong tonal contrast emphasise the strength of the light. There is a puzzling arrangement of walls and enclosed spaces and an odd scale to the buildings, small down by the sea, large as you climb the hill. The balance of warm and cool colours give structure and harmony to the picture.
