Hang on Studio Wall

A4 watercolour on Bockingford rough paper. I scene I know well having spent twelve years working in the woodlands adjoining the old rifle range at Pulpit Hill . The view is from the path leading down and looks across towards High Wycombe, before demolition yiu could see the cooling towers at Didcot on the distant horizon. Unfortunately now attached to the fence is a 5x4 sign post explain g the local flora and fauna but hiding the view.
