Been looking for some more paintings spots near home. I want to make more of the Great River Ouse that flows through St Ives   where I live.  I found the meadows near Holywell that have loads of possibilities.  I have painted there before but have only just started to see what is on offer.  Previously I had thought it too pretty and “chocolate box” for my tastes.  Insect repellent is essential for this location!  Looking at the image below I need to knock back that distant tree trunk – it jumps forward a bit too much, apart for that I am pleased with the overall feel of it
