A small oil painting on board of a corner of a field, a short walk away from my house. The wheat is fully ripened, ready for harvest and bathed in an early evening light after the day's heat.
Christopher Witchall's landscape paintings capture the open spaces and vast skies of the Cambridgeshire fens where he has lived, explored, painted and photographed for 30 years.
His evocative, yet unsentimental approach to landscape, combine traditional painting techniques with the realism and cool detachment of photography.
