The canal at Thurnham,
Oil on card,  10"x8"
Done on location yesterday afternoon. I added the lamb from a photo I took at the time.
I think I may simplify some of the elements, especially in the background. Part way through this I thought it could be an Easter painting but I'm not sure I like the symbolism.

I've had another go at it and painted out the lamb and reduced the contrast of the background woods; too many value changes. I'm going to simplify the foreground hawthorn too. I've reduced the violet in the middle elements.
