Towards the Ridgeway

by Marion Deacon
(Surrey, UK)

Attached is a copy of a painting called Towards the Ridgeway. It explores the feeling of space and beauty found along the Ridgeway in Wiltshire. The ridges of hills are punctuated with stocky trees. I painted it to explore the feeling of space and openness. Colours chosen remind the viewer that although remote and windswept, in the summer these valleys and hills celebrate the heat and light of the summer sun.


It is a mixed media painting created with collage, acrylics, and pastels.
