Patrick Heron spent most of his childhood in Cornwall and then trained at the Slade School of Art between 1937–1939. The Cornish landscape where he lived was influential to his work. He sees the contours of the rocks on the moors and cliffs as having powerful rhythms which he translates into his art. It is interesting to consider whether this painting is constructed with interconnecting coloured shapes creating a flat space, or whether shapes are overlapping each other to create shallow sections which protrude and recede.
