    'Puddle V' is a view of Hampstead Heath in north London. Mike Silva creates an atmospheric view of an idyllic English summer afternoon after rainfall, with intense colour and dappled sunlight falling on trees. At first glance Silva's painting seems to replicate a snapshot, but on closer inspection it dissolve into abstract constructions of colour and light.
