This painting, ‘Evening Light, St John’s Street (Cambridge)’, sold recently at the Saffron Walden Gallery run by the splendid Bill Tickner, who has held my work for several years now. It has now found its way to a new home in Utrecht!
I painted the scene in Cambridge at the end of Winter in 2017. The monumental tree trunk all but obscures St John’s College Chapel, its bare branches filling the air with intricate tracery. I loved the moss green swathe of grass spread before it like a Pre-Raphaelite’s cloak.
