“I love the gentle and transcient light which the English climate gives us; coastal scenes and landscapes offer a great subject matter, with areas of richness, and ever-changing reflections.  In my work it is important that I create a sense of place, be it imagined or otherwise.  I like structure, but hopefully as the painting progresses, forms will begin to melt away into shapes and colour used for their own sake.  My aim is to convey a sense of atmosphere, perhaps leaving passages of the painting understated.” Michael Hill
