Autumn on Goose Green Yate

Landscape Watercolour of Yate nr Bristol, 15" x 11" on Bockingford NOT Paper 140 lbs

Goose Green in the town of Yate and a welcome bit of small parkland in amongst the housing estates.  Goose Green (nothing to do with the Falklands) is so named because of the Goose Fairs they held here several hundred years ago when Yate was just a small village in the Cotswolds.  Interesting challenge with this painting was getting the feeling of sunlight coming in from the right and getting the perspective correct on the shadows from the rows of trees.
