From the fiery horizons of Thailand to the proud roots of the British landscape, the magic of twilight is captured in Richard Rowan’s stunning new Twilight collection.
To recreate the vivid hues, Richard used two different oil paints and his own chemical formula, with timing crucial for blending and applying layers. The colours are more radiant on glass than when they are first squeezed from the tube, as the medium adds its own refractive luminosity. He adds: “With glass naturally responding to changes in light, the paintings will continue to evolve over time.”
Speaking on this piece, Richard says: “During our many trips to Thailand, I have always been amazed by the colourful skies there. Hot and humid, the country offers a different view of twilight; as it is so close to the equator, you have just minutes before the sun goes down rapidly. It was a challenge to work on the vast colour changes of the sky.”
