Artist's description:

Bolderwood nestles deep in the centre of the New Forest. It is as dark and ancient as the Forest itself and can be totally silent apart from the creaking of beech and oak tree boughs and the occasional rustle of squirrels in the leaves. Deer have been here for thousands of years, and make no sound as they drift like shadows through the trees.
I love this place!
I could paint here every day, winter and summer, every day there are changes.
This painting began with loads of sketches and photos, at the end of September as the leaves were just changing a little and the sun was still strong. Then completed in my studio through into January 2019 where it was warmer.
There is a deer park at Bolderwood near to the main car park where visitors can view the wild fallow and roe deer, which means I could get up really close for the details.
The painting, however, had started as a bigger canvas, but it quickly became obvious that a section of trees had become redundant to it and it was important for the balance of the painting to re-stretcher it, which can be clearly seen in the photos of the staples on the reverse of the canvas. I'm really pleased how the re-stretchering went, it's a much smarter painting for the additional work.
Now it is a neat 60cm x 25cm and is offered ready to be hung unframed, but have I included an impression of how it would look should you wish to have it framed yourself.
If you've never visited the New Forest, I strongly recommend it, it's tranquility alone is worth the journey and a walk on a quiet day (so avoid school holidays :-) ) can lift your soul and rest the mind, and who knows, you might even see a deer or two.
