The Glade

Gill Bustamante

The Glade is an original oil on canvas Sussex landscape painting of a green woodland glade by a stream next to apple blossom trees in springtime. It is 24x30x0.75 inches. The outer edges of the painting have been deliberately blurred so that the viewer is drawn into the centre to see the blossom trees growing by a riverbank. The centre of the painting is painted in more definite brush strokes which gives a sharper 3D effect. The blossom is white and pink and behind them you can see a field and the suggestion of more trees in the distance. It looks a little like a fairy tale but this was me playing that down (believe it or not). The inspiration for this painting was an actual place near where I live between Forest Row and Hartfield. It is the view of a small stream that runs into the Medway River a bit further along. The colours are muted greens, pinks, yellows and white. It is painted on thin canvas with white edges. A frame would complement it but is not necessary. Video: https://yout
