Distant Light

Signed and dated (on the reverse)
Oil on canvas
60 x 60 cm.
Painted in 2020

This work was inspired by a captivating sunset over the South Downs National Park in late Summer.

Jonathan Speed takes a dramatic sky to the point of abstraction with generous, sweeping brushstrokes and a vibrant colour palette. He is passionate about the beauty of nature and constantly seeks to produce peaceful and inspiring paintings that convey the atmosphere and energy of each scene within our ever-changing environment.

Inspired by the great painters, Turner, Whistler and Courbet, Jonathan works predominantly with oils using a refined technique of application, combining subtle tonal blending with expressionistic bursts of colour and texture to emulate their use of light and atmospheric qualities.
