Original summer cornfield painting

My Original summer cornfield painting is one of  my favourite paintings. I aimed to captured the golden ochres of the corn that you see towards the end of the summer.

It is painted using a mixture of media: acrylic, water based oil paints and oil pastels and is a scene from a Lincolnshire cornfield I captured whilst on a family holiday. We stayed in a cottage just outside Market Rasen.

Market Rasen

Market Rasen is a bustling market town standing on the western edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds and is famous for having the only racecourse in Lincolnshire.

The town is popular with walkers and there are great routes and trails just five minutes stroll from the town centre. You can also head out to Willingham Woods where there are numerous trails and paths for all ages and abilities.

Nearby the villages of Tealby, described as the most charming village, has the Kings Head pub, the oldest thatched pub in Lincolnshire; and Walesby, home of All Saints ‘Ramblers’ Church. This iconic medieval church stands in solitary dignity overlooking the village on the Viking Way. The view from the church is quite spectacular and inside is a beautiful stained glass window, depicting walkers and cyclists.

Open Studios

As this is such a large painting, why not come and visit my studio to see it close up. I often open up my studio to the public. It is open the first Saturday of the month and a lot during the summer months. My studio is in Oaks Park which is situated on the chalky North Surrey Downs . It is about 10 minutes walk from my home and where my studio is so I have the pleasure of walking around it often.  It  is incredibly beautiful in the summer due to the wonderful summer meadow planted by the conservation group The Downlands Trust. The best time to come is in the Summer when we have Carshalton Artists Open Studios and also you can cross the road to https://www.mayfieldlavender.com/.
