Not far from Stonehenge lies this lesser know Neolithic monument, the largest  megalithic stone circle in the world. Mandy Main captured it here with dramatic afternoon light. Sunlight pours in from the left, highlighting the fields and clouds and casting dark shadows, while a gathering storm darkens the sky in the background. The walking path of the outer circle leads deep into the landscape.

Getting to Know Mandy

Mandy Main is an art historian and landscape painter based in the Southern California desert. She has long been passionate about 19th Century American landscape paintings, which has been influential in her artistic practice. Mandy works in series, generally three paintings at a time. Her process begins with a vision of a place she has been, but she takes creative liberties with the aesthetic details. The artist is captivated by light and shadow, and strives to instill her work with moody drama through the representation of these elements. Using layers of paint and glazes, Mandy achieves mesmerizing atmospheric depth, encouraging the viewer to gaze and be still.
