Blakes Wood

Blakes Wood

As my children are getting older and more responsible, my wife and I are regularly able to steal an hour to go for an uninterrupted walk around our village. One of our favourite walks starts through our little garden gate and into the woods, then downhill towards the valley and the river, past the lock and back up the hill again towards Blakes Wood. This reference photograph was taken on one such evening walk. The shadows being cast by the setting sun are what drew me to this particular scene (one of many taken that day).

This is quite a typical subject matter for me and I enjoyed painting it. I hope you do too!
