In the woods. Edgewick farm.

Watercolour on Langton 140lb NOT. Edgwick farm is a popular place for us to walk the dog and generally have a good ramble. It's also one of the many places where we've tried to tire out the kids.
Without success. This is from a photo taken on a gloomy afternoon and I made a concious effort to impose my own ideas concerning light values. I also used artistic licence to make the path lead the eye into the focal point in the top right. It takes confidence to make changes to an image, something I'm not overly endowed with, but I'm generally pleased with this one and it gave me a boost.
