This is a subject that I really like. The tall waving grasses , the hillside beyond, the thin trees partially obscuring the view and the path covered over with all sorts of meadow plants. It is known as The Bog - and is part of a friend’s extensive garden in Scotland. I used the colour of the heathers as an inspiration for the pinky mauve hillside.
