Hills and Holes 1

Hills and Holes is a wildlife area near the village of  Barnack in Cambridgeshire. Nearly a millenium ago limestone was excavated here to build Peterborough Cathedral, and the resulting landscape is reflected in the name. I painting this facing straight into the sun in late afternoon, reducing the shapes to more or less two contrasting values of green. It looks a bit like a stormy sea in my view and this thought comes across quite well.
