With its flat top and conical shape, Little Salisbury is the most distinctive of the seven hills that surround Bath. I began this painting by experimenting with a slightly different drawing technique. Usually I pick a single colour to make the entire drawing with. The colour of the drawing medium gives the painting its underlying flavour. Looking at Little Salisbury I decided to use a different colour for each level of the hill. Although subtle, this directly impacts on the translucent colours that are then painted on top. Some of the inks used are opalescent so have reflective qualities.
