first Cannon Heath Down painting, except that it's 6 months later (and so a different season), smaller, relatively longer (which helped me avoid the awkward foreground detail), and, I think, more accomplished. I guess that all that practice has helped me improve!

Watership Down (1) from - and took a series of shots. I was slightly disappointed that we didn't get much snow this winter - unlike the last two years, which were, as it happens, exceptionally snowy. This, from February, was the snowiest picture that I could manage; as you can see the hill is satisfyingly covered, but you can see vegetation on the valley floor.

The fourth colour of wine is, of course, green. By which the Portuguese mean "young". I'm not going to go on about the style of wine, except to say that vinho verde is very nice indeed.
This painting differs from the previous wine paintings in that it's on canvas, and is a bit bigger. As it happens, I'd run out of the boards, but I did have several of these 30 x 40 canvases, which offer a better aspect ratio - and a little more room to suggest the curly "V" on the label.

Edit: I think the names of these vinous paintings are getting longer!

The board is a commercially prepared canvas board.
