Romney Marsh vi



Romney Marsh vi
10 x 12 Oil/Panel

Every now and again I revisited in painting a place that I love. I find that the years in between create a growth in one's painting and although the scene is the same, there are differences in the final painting.

This is a favourite area of mine. Not so far from Grove Ferry, but different in that it is a wetland area, much of it reclaimed. It has a full and varied history, too much for me to write here, but here is a link for more information if anyone is interested. It is not far from Canterbury, in Kent.

Wonderful soft edges, that stream looks almost carved out of the pasture, wonderful!!

Lynne E. Windsor said...

Thanks again Diane... actually you are right, the stream has carved itself through the pasture. The orbs as I have called the round balls of grass have intrigued me for years and I think are created by the currents in the stream washing away the mud. They are great to paint! By the way, I love your floral paintings. Very luscious.

This is so beautiful Lynne, and so tranquil to look at. I loved your hummingbirds too, you are so very accomplished and inspiring!

Sending love

Thank you Julia, I really appreciate your kind words. How is spring shaping up in the UK? I am missing it.

Still haven't managed to pick up a crochet hook... hopefully I will soon! xx
