When this one was finished it was one of those (very rare) that I felt fully happy with! This is one of my favourite types of subject, and to carry off things well enough in terms of markmaking throughout a painting of natural/farmed landscape like this just doesn't happen all that often. A scene from farmland south of Bristol, where I live. It was toward the end of a lovely walk of discovery, on a footpath I'd not walked before, and I was very taken with the arrangement of those trees. Have been meaning to go back and paint it plein air.
