The Painter (S) 23 MAY 2012

The painter is somebody out of time.

It's a snowy day in London and we're looking at this picture of the painter at work in the field. They're in a field of flowering plants in the hills at Black Tree above Fethiye.

At this height in early Summer it is cool. The painter wears a black top. They have carried their chair and their table out into the field and sit not far from a tree, which we know they have considered rendering in a Palmeresque style.

Instead, the mist has come in, and they sit with their brush waiting, looking up at the side of the mountain before them, where the grey green scrub and the grey white rocks are almost obscured.
