Richard was spurred to capture the power of the sky after becoming inspired by his son’s fear of it. He used his signature back-to-front oil painting technique before baking the glass over a period of two weeks. The piece was then underlit to scratch out the lightning bolt and white paint was added to intensify the main strike.
Richard says: “I look to the power of our planet, the five billion Joules of energy in a light show that impresses, scares and amazes us. In one split second, the power of nature’s energy is revealed.”
