Yew Walk

Acrylic on canvas board 20x25cm. The drought had brought down a thick carpet of dead needles in burnt sienna, with purple shadows - all exhiliarating after struggling with the June and July greens of the two previous uploads. This was in Leatherhead churchyard (Surrey) but I've missed out the church wall on the far right, and two massive black waste bins, and a handful of headstones reminding me of my mortality when I didn't want to know.
