    Nice progression of how you built the scene – really enjoyed this one. Lovely painting!!

  2. I do like little scenes like this, which get your imagination working….and the intrigue of what’s around the bend?? 😉
    A lovely step by step build up 🙂

    • Lovely comment Caren. I/we get so wrapped up in doing the picture, we can’t imagine what others think seeing it. I was concentrating on lines and shapes so much, I never gave a thought to the corner and what was around it! It was one of those walks where you go miles further necause you just want to see round that corner…

      • I know what you mean, we work on pieces as we intend them to hopefully turn out, though other eyes might always see them differently! All your line concentration paid off wonderfully in your scene and well worth the extra walk too I reckon 😉

    Not exactly sure how to explain this – but I find the “life” in the lane interesting. Maybe it’s the sense of movement or, like previously commented, it’s the intrigue of what’s around the bend.

  4. It seems to me that you have slowly turned a quiet country lane into a Paul Nash battlefield. There seems an air of desolation in the bottom painting – just an observation, not a criticism.

    • That’s interesting Graham. Yes, it does get bleaker. The second is tempestuous too. Wonder where that came from. I’ve been on the front line in the Spanish Civil War with Orwell in my reading lately. Perhaps it’s worked its way through.

    Now that’s a lane that went from quiet to happening!
