Summer On Chalk Downland

by Stevie Gilmore
(Swindon, Wiltshire)

I have known this place from an early age. I have never tired of back-packing on hot Summer days down the ancient trackways of my home county. My painting shows just such a day, where golden corn crackles in the afternoon heat as land gulls glide lazily overhead.

Comment from Sue:

Summer slides into autumn as I write, but this painting brings back memories of lush, breathless summer days.
Many thanks for sharing!

Thank you

A gorgeous painting. I love the way the colours are slightly heightened, conveying the magic of the landscape.

Thank you very much Stevie and Sue for spreading the message of the beauty of the Wiltshire Downs.
