A Corner of the Windrush

Oil on Board, 10 x 14 inches

Well, Spring's here, buried under all the snow, so here's a reminder of what's just around the corner....surely!  Nice change to use a few greens in the mixes, although my preference is to paint trees in their winter garb.

That's a little bench that was actually behind the tree on the far bank, but I moved it a few yards to the right for the sake of the composition to provide a focal point.

Janey Edkins has published two new posts on her Blog, with more tasters on her brilliant new book, which has been re-titled 'Love, Honour and Ovulate'.  Go take a look and make her day by leaving a comment at the bottom!  Link:


  1. Very evocative of "Wind in the Willows".
    Beautiful work Peter.

    1. Thank you Wendy! I should have put Ratty and Mole sailing on a raft!

  2. Hi Peter.
    Another winner mate. amazing painting with just that touch of impressionism in it to make it perfect. All the best Peter.

    1. Yo Vic - that's music to my ears, thanks so much!
