When We Had Sun...

This painting has been sadly neglected over the past couple of months - I have been spending my time painting commissioned work and this has had to go on the back burner.  It's an acrylic of the grounds at Old Basing House, a fascinating place we visited in the summer.  Hard to believe we sat further up the hill and had a picnic in the sunshine which was strong enough to give us sunburn!

This is such a typically English scene, my aim is for it to be as chocolate-boxy as it likes.  I am having enormous fun with it, the sheep in the meadow, the limpid pool, plenty of greenery. it's got it all.  There is still a lot of work to be done, but I don't mind,  this is my true vocation!
