Using a selection of ingenious techniques to create his intricate and atmospheric artworks, Richard first selects a piece of music which he associates with a particular time and place. He then replays this music while he paints to evoke the surroundings and emotions he felt in the original landscape.
At the same time, he uses his own revered technique of reverse painting onto glass. Starting with the foreground before painting backwards until all he can see is the vague strokes of his background, Richard is able to capture minute details of shading against a raw backdrop of richly coloured sky; preserved within the layers of paint on glass. The sixth photograph of this artwork showcases the viewing window on the back of the frame which the artist included to reveal the complex layers within his reverse painting technique.
