surrounding atmosphere by Robert Burns Miller


Available to buy on…

“For me, a landscape does not exist in its own right, since its appearance changes at every moment; but the surrounding atmosphere brings it to life – the light and the air which vary continually. For me, it is only the surrounding atmosphere which gives subjects their true value.”

Claude Monet (French painter, initiator and leader of the Impressionist style, 1840-1926)

    An example of ‘Poetry In Light.’ Superb composition and excellent exposure, Robert. You’ve captured the lighting conditions that Turner, Constable, and Moran would have painted in their landscapes. Wonderful work! Cheers! Chris
