Sunny Paddock Oils on canvas board 6 x 6 inches
Last Saturday I took some canvases to my framer Graham Perkins at Forge Arts in Hackthorn near Lincoln. Whilst he was fitting the new frames I walked around the little village with my whippet. At the end of this lane the paddock was lit by the sun and inspired this small study. I took the liberty of removing the gate (in the painting, not for real) to invite the viewers eye into the field.
The cottage was also interesting but I played down the details so I wasn't distracted from the focus. The field won my attention on this occasion.
