Artist's description:

This is an original painting, inspired by a day spent on the Somerset Levels near Glastonbury one February. New snow had just started to fall in big flakes, and the sky was an eerie soft purple. The fields were planted with a feed crop, which was bright green, and the coppiced willows looked weird and prehistoric.

I drew the trees and distance in ink and water, and then painted in the main washes. I used a semi-transparent white oil pastel to soften the distance and push it backwards, scraping detail into its surface. I also used oil pastels to create the texture of the new snow on the field in the foreground.

The picture is sold framed. The frame is silvered grey-green, with a faint gold band on the outside and inside of the front of the frame. The mount is a neutral cream, with a black inner, which highlights the pen and ink work.

Because this picture includes oil pastels it is very fragile and needs to be handled carefully if taken out of its frame.

Materials used:

Painted in artists' quality watercolour, with Winsor and Newton black indian ink for the drawing, and oil pastels and coloured pencil on 140lb / 300g/m2 watercolour paper.
