Lee Tiller has developed quite a reputation for his ability to capture the effects of light on the landscape. His impressionist style harks back to that of the 19th Century French impressionists, a style that he claims formed the pinnacle of artistic expression. Please note: Painting in frame and room environment is for references only. In 'Snow Henge' he reflects on the work of Monet and Pissarro and is inspired by their rendering of snow in the landscape. In Tiller's work, as in the original French Impressionists, we see the full richness of the 'broken colour' technique where even snow is an orchestration of shimmering delicate hues and tints. As Tiller says "white is never white!" In this painting of the Avebury stone circle, the viewer experiences a real sensation of both time and place, and is left feeling a sense of tranquility and emotional calm. Snow Henge is a beautiful evocation of these timeless, silent sentinels during early morning where overnight snow has fallen leaving troughs, ridges and shadows.
