“In choosing a specific image as the source for a painting, I look for several things. One is the angle of the shot. It should approach flatness, yet not be completely flat, so as to create a sense of tension… I find myself increasingly concerned with the time of day and quality of light… Now I prefer the low raking shadows that occur in the late afternoon and eveing… I want expressive light that suggests a mood.” – Harold Gregor on flatscapes
