Cotswold Christmas Oil on board 16″x 12″

A typical generic Cotswold scene with figures in the snow. A tree line with cottages nestled amongst them. The painting conveys an iconic view of English country life at Christmas time. Children are seen about to go sledding in the crisp newly fallen snow, whilst a man walks his dog. The sunlit snowfall is offset by the luminous purple shadows which indicate the time of day to be late afternoon. ” I love painting snow, I like to evoke it’s presence to the viewer without overstating it. it is such a hard thing to pin down in paint ! “
