Beautiful pink scented flowers with strong shadows made by early spring sunshine. I am not sure which was most important here, the flower or the shadow.

We drove through the South Downs this time last year, on the way to the funeral of a friend. Emotions very raw we listened to Vaughn Williams and watched this achingly beautiful landscape unfold. I wept and drew, loving the hills and dried winter colours.
I want to make bigger paintings of this place but I think that I will have to make a special trip, just to drink it in.
This little study is one of two; its partner appears tomorrow.
Each painting costs:40 pounds (UK) 78 dollars (USA) and 60 euros (Europe). This includes the frame and the postage.
