|Rooted in Prehistory: Beech Wood at Danebury Hill, oil on canvas, 40x50cm|
Earlier this week, I visited Danebury Hil, where there is a large, well preserved, iron-age hill fort. There is also a very lovely beech wood on the side of the hill. Here, the beech trees are growing over the outer ramparts of the fort, their shallow root systems rising from the ground as the trees cling to the earthworks.
The painting is based on photographs that I took at Danebury.
