Dappled Light over temple Mill. (£99)

This is the lane running through Temple Mill in Sibford, it's a farm which has been in the same family since 1800, and was run as a mill until 1960. Because of the twisting lane which bisects the farm and the overhanging trees I find that on a sunny day it always provides a dramatic subject for a painting.

Stream through the wood


I managed to find a place out of the sun in the woods to paint today but resisted the temptation to dangle my feet in the water. It's hot, and getting hotter!
