Blog Post No 96……….From the days when Rose and I walked many miles in many places, we seem to remember that this image is in the region of Grassington, Wharfedale, North Yorkshire.

For me this is a ‘ happy ‘ picture, sunny early Spring day, trees beginning to break into leaf, and there is, as I like, water, this time in the form of a river.

The broken shadow running across the foreground emphasises the bright yellow / green sward running up the hillside. It”s an uncomplicated COMPOSITION with the characteristics of the terrain needing no explanation.

The river banks give the necessary recession with the waters of the river now running smoothly.

As usual we have a figure in RED walking into the distance. This gives a focal point and scale to the painting.

Now that lock down is easing, be careful, have fun but STAY SAFE
