From Rostellan Wood. I rarely repeat the same subject matter one after the other, but I had such a good time with the first briar leaves painting that I had enough appetite to do a similar subject. Anyway the colour scheme is very different to the other briar leaves painting!
Discovered during a walk in Rostellan Wood in October, 2012. There were some amazing bright-coloured briar leaves that day.
This is my first oils painting, painted in January 2012. Took me a little while to get used to oils; their stiffness and the way they work with mediums was new.
