Ian Scott's Perspective

Artist's commentary

Took a break climbing a hill while mountain biking, I didn't gave any Art supplies with me, but I took a digital and mental image of the high contrast shadow's made on the landscape by the quickly passing clouds, creating the surrealistic effect of dancing spotlights, with no constant light source.
