I probably wouldn’t have painted this subject if the lockdown wasn’t happening! Thinking the grass is greener elsewhere and driven out to find a subject. This is a short walk from our house, in the sticks and very quiet.

I have painted it a few years ago in the snow. There are lot of aspects which work – the lead in path, the gate for interest, the big trees framing, the hills behind giving a sense of space. Contra jour at around 3-4pm bright afternoon light that creates wonderful shadows.

I used a 12×12″board.

Keep well,

best wishes, Clare
