Avebury on a Midwinter Night. No, I didn’t stand out in the freezing cold to sketch it! The ancient landscape of Wiltshire, especially the area around Marlborough and Avebury is my second home these past 40 years since my family moved down there. I am inspired by the spirit of this landscape and feel I can draw on its energy and imagery even when I’m not there.  I love the energy of this painting and enjoyed the mark-making.
