Sheila Mullen
Borders Landscape
Oil on canvas, 82.5x88.5 cm
Reg. No: G1049
"People ask me why I painted that landscape, why it's angry or sad... I'm not trying to paint pretty landscapes, that doesn't interest me. I'm interested in using colour to express the emotion of the landscape. You know the Australians and their idea of the Dreamworld? I'm trying to create a Scottish Dreamworld!" - Sheila Mullen.

Here, Sheila has used strong brush-strokes to create a sense of dappled autumn light bouncing off the trees.
