Marshfield, England, 22" x 15".
A plein air painting from a sketching trip last year. The scene is of a lane leading up to a farm behind the village, with some old barns to one side. I introduced a few strategic puddles to get some reflections in. Also when I was doing the first was of the lane, I left out little areas which easily became stones once a shadow was added. Trees were done with an old mop brush in a fairly loose fashion. The dark yew tree left of centre was done with thinker pigment and upward strokes to give the appearance of the way they grow.
