Cross Country - 3

I've worked today on extending the basic structure of the windswept grasses...you could be forgiven for thinking this is a daylight scene...it's not, it will be much darker eventually...ideally I'd like to introduce a layer of mist between the girl and the tree which I hope will give an more dreamlike appearance.

Hi DM! I've not really been away, just not making good use of blogging..(The curse of Facebook) #but thank you, i'm enjoying this piece which came about after a suggestion by my daughter Annie...she said 'why don't you do nice beautiful pictures like you used to?' refering to a very early piece I did way back in the late 1980's. So I decided to create something along those lines...this is the result. Of course it's full of symbolism as you'd expect. I travel regularly on the trains featured in this picture...the goldfish bowl refers to a lyric in a Pink floyd song: 'Wish you were here'.
