An Oak Tree in the Vale of Pewsey. You can see one of Wiltshire's White Horses on the hill left of the tree.
The embankment of the main railway line from Paddington through to Westbury, cuts across the landscape and every now and then a blue coloured express passes by, but too swiftly to  try to paint in. On te RH is  the clump of trees on Wooborough hill, a familiar landmark in the area.
NB Just went to see this tree  again with a view to painting it again, almost a year later - I was a bit shocked to see that they were bulldozing a large shallow depression  next to it, so a big pile of mud and bare earth looking a bit messy.  Hope they know what they are doing. Possibly they are making a lake,

Westbury from White Horse Hill

WESTBURY TOWARDS BRADFORD, From White Horse Hill. Spent longer than usual on this this morning. Just over 2 hours, Initially there were just those distant clouds. More clouds rolled in and covered most of the sky - shadows kept changing dramatically over the landscape.
I added the near clouds at the end The main quality of the view was the gradating sky so I thought that's a mistake, but now it seems to work and gives a 3D effect, leading one into the painting.
