Suddenly I saw this sight and knew I had to paint it! We were travelling from Sussex to Reading, when we stopped briefly to look at directions. I cast my head to one side and was immediately struck by the vision before me. When I arrived home the next day, I was certain I should use my special canvas to paint this image. My special canvas belonged to one of the Great Bardfield set – a prolific group of Essex artists, famous during the 1950s. I’m sure there must be an essence of the artist in the canvas, as it was so quick and easy to paint this picture.
