This 36 inch canvas of the Stour Valley at Wiston near Nayland in Suffolk was painted in late May 2012. I worked on it for 3 days with the majority of the painting completed on the first day. After that, I only made minor changes and all work was completed on location.
I had thought I was on a quiet road but at one point four cars stopped, completely blocking the road, and everyone had got out to look. It was like a bizzare street party in the middle of nowhere but they all soon left and peace returned to this quiet country lane in a peaceful corner of Suffolk.
