Painted on Matthew Palmer’s Fontaine 140lb watercolour block.

I wanted to capture the late summer feeling with the light and abundant wild flowers that you see at this time of year.

All in all it worked out quite well and I added the dog walker in the centre to give a point of interest that the users eye is taken to by the path leading to the gate.

I was in two minds about having the gate open but in the countryside it is more normal to have them closed and I think that eye naturally drifts to the distant background anyway.
