This passage from the book ‘Monet to Matisse – Painting the Modern Garden’ captures why I was drawn to the subject of natural light in landscape, particularly the idea of capturing ‘fleetingness’. I have selected some impressionist paintings from the book that link and inspire my project.

Looking at all the pieces I picked together, one feature in all of them is the way vibrancy of colour that is used to create mood and portray the intensity of sunlight.

This painting by Kandinksy was so different from the other paintings in the book. After reading the passage discussing the painting (below) I thought the abstraction and symbolism used was an interesting way to describe a memory of people or places.
