The Park, LincolnshireBy Martin Snee
The Park is a remnant of the original parkland which belonged to the manor house in the village where I live. I always think that parkland studded with mature trees is somehow quintessentially English, it has a classical beauty. Also, I used to climb the trees when I was a kid.
I used a loose and impressionist approach, using the acrylics like watercolour to capture the feel of the light on the leaves and the wind on the grass.
Acrylic on stretched canvas.
