Tree shadows

This painting has been sold

Acrylic on hardboard 6" x 7.5"

The hills around here dip and fold in quite a close and contained way so a lot of the time you don't get really long vistas but you can see 3 or 4 levels of peaks in quite close succession falling away to the horizon. I was working here from some photographs I took in May to try to get that across. I love this view with the tree shadows on the hillside. I always like to go back there. This is near Glossop in Derbyshire. It's less wild than Longdendale which is moving more towards the Yorkshire moors.
Update on posting: I have restored the original image here because the buyer preferred it that way!
