“Painting is a way of expressing my feelings. I like to paint good things that give viewers a good feeling, and make them think and feel rejuvenated,” said the late Raphael Scott Ahbeng. That statement seems evident in this piece as he does provoke a sense of calmness to those who view it. Ahbeng’s fondness for nature is evident yet again in this piece, showcasing what seems to be a range of undulating hills. Bold strokes and intense colours further elevates the calmness that is resonated by the ‘Landscape’, as well as that of nature.
