On the bend.

                      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.
