Found a good lane near Conington with view towards the village.  Some sheep wandered into view as I was cleaning up, so may add some of these later.  I scared a few people as they strolled past – they wondered what I was doing at first hiding in the bushes!  I have been working on this one at home adding some more warms to the foreground and making the skyline more interesting with the tops of the trees a closer tone to the sky.

    Beautiful! I particularly enjoy the complexity of the sky. Also, your story behind the painting is great.

      Thanks for your kind comments. I was pleased with the sky but had to work and the skyline and that large tree to get them to “sit right” in the picture. It has been a typical wet English summer this week so I have been out painting some cloudy skys,
