In the Midst of all the Grasses

Beautiful composition, Chrissie, and lovely warm colours.

Beautiful, Chrissie. Lovely sense of sun and warmth.

Beautifully handled Chrissie.

Lovely sunlight on the greens...

Lovely fresh greens Chrissie, super style.

Thank you everyone - it was quite an adventure with all the greens!

Hang on Studio Wall

Oil on canvas 60x50 cms 24x20inches. I painted this Alla Prima partly because with all the different green mixes, I didn’t want to lose track of them. The palette looked fairly chaotic towards the end! These trees grow in a small copse in our field. They are a mixture of native types, but in the background you can just see the twin trunks of a Sequoia [Giant Redwood] that I planted about 15yrs ago. The grasses in the painting spring up in a small clearing in the middle of the copse, and many small creatures and birds find a home there. We have many pigeons in Cambridgeshire, and they seem to making an appearance in most of my recent paintings , as they are here. I’m not especially fond of pigeons, but they do provide quite a reasonable compositional device...
