This large canvas developed from a woodland walk on Christmas Day 2013. It was the winter solstice sunshine that was the key factor. The way that light came in at a low angle, enhancing both the central upright form and the bloom of early buds in the tree-tops beyond is what caught my eye. I enjoyed the resulting range of warm hues against the powdery blue sky beyond. It felt good to take more space to let these colours sing! This canvas is now sold un-stretched with it's stretcher pieces supplied. It will be rolled and carefully packaged for postage. To allow for the cost of re-stretching the price has accordingly been considerably reduced.
