My woodland walk
In 2020, staying in Holsworthy, Devon I was enjoying walking and exploring the town. I could see a railway viaduct over the road, with grass growing on it. Walking up a side street I came to a busy supermarket car park. This seemed to give access to the old railway line.
What a joy I found as I walked onto what had once been the train line. This was now a long, narrow strip of woodland where Nature had taken over. She had transformed the old, disused railway line into a long narrow strip of woodland. A variety of trees and bushes with paths where I could wander. It was so peaceful. There was no sound from the car park or road, simply quiet and amazing greenery. I sat happily sketching this wonderful place.
In my studio I painted three 75 x 50 cm oil paintings and called them Woodland Walk 1, 2 and 3. I have tried to capture the light, the peace and calmness I felt in this lovely place. Please enjoy.
