This painting has been a number of weeks in the making: the starting point was a photograph which I took at the height of the summer last year. It was a hot, still day with hazy light which made the scene shimmer. A while a go I painted a small oil study, and this was used as the basis for this much larger painting (100 x 75 x 2 cm) which I have been working on in the studio for a long time. I wanted to capture all the warm, golden tones and soft pinks of the long grasses and the lush greens and the deepening the shade of the trees - it has involved a lot of painting and repainting to fine tune and get the balance of colours right. The canvas is painted with Michael Harding Artists colours and brushes and palette knives were used to achieve the interesting textures. The painting is designed to be hung unframed so the edges of the canvas are painted white.
