Janet Bone studied at Edinburgh College of Art from 1959 to 1964. Janet is interested in depicting the changing colours of plants and extremes of light and shade. She works from photographs, which allows her plenty of time to consider the various elements of her composition.

This bold, yet beautiful oil painting depicts a landscape from the village of Arduaine in Argyll and Bute. The village is home to Arduaine Gardens, owned by the National Trust of Scotland, which is a wonderful coastal garden and very tranquil; perhaps this is where Janet took inspiration for her oil painting. We recognise a bright, trodden path, leading into dense foliage. The sun’s rays are peeking through the canopies created by the trees and plants, creating a beautiful dappling light. This light, which Janet carefully contrasts with the large, dark silhouette of the tree, gives this work texture and movement. The whole composition with its differing colours brings this landscape to life; while looking, we can reminisce about similar walks or strolls during the height of spring.
