Lanyon had been always been interested in places where solids and fluids come together, such as the meeting of sea and cliff, of wind and rock, and wanted his work to capture all of his feelings about the land – or seascape and the effects of wind and rain and spume. In his paintings there is a sense of things moving backwards and forwards, and the handling of paint, from light washes to thick impasto, give an illusion of depth.
