A double canvass giving a 2 metre panoramic view across the Ridgeway villages of Letcombe Regis and Bassett. The fields of greens and ochres moving away to left in the distance take you into the quintessential Oxfordshire landscape. The canvasses can be seen side-by-side, separate or even at right-angles to each other. The texture of the tree lines and hedges painted in relief give a tactile feel to the painting: the limited palette adds a pleasant and peaceful atmosphere. The sketch was made outside on location along with a photograph that was then worked on in the studio and painted in one session to give an immediate feel to the work.
