These groves of trees are planted not far from the river Dropt. All straight & square, they are grown for cardboard boxes. I like openness & airiness of the groves. Not quiet field, not quiet wood. An ‘in-between space’. BTW, they have a bright orange fungus on their trunks , just like walnut trees in winter.

The small study is an effort to simplify & to prioritise colour over detail & tonality. Just a study, just a little inkling of an idea… Take it further into a fully resolved large size oil?

It is by great economy of means that one arrives at simplicity of expression. (Henri Cartier-Bresson)

How difficult it is to be simple. (Vincent van Gogh)

Out of intense complexities, intense simplicities emerge. (Winston Churchill)

about walnuts…

Walnuts are one of the principal crops of the Dordogne & feature in our regional cuisine. The orchards are very beautiful places. It’s quiet common to see large walnut trees in the middle of fields or near to farms, where they are loved for the nuts they provide.
