Troubled Track is part of a series of woodland paintings and drawings Claire has made in the last six months. Using a limited palette which includes cobalt violet light and phthalocyanine turquoise, this series of paintings capture the essence and atmosphere of the woods in autumn and winter.
Claire was inspired to make this painting after a walk in Hevingham woods in Norfolk on a foggy day where she took note of the amazing colour perspective enhanced by the fog. It seemed like a filter had been added to the landscape where everything had been given a blueish hue and the reds of the ferns stood out. Hevingham woods is large with a few ponds, a dense covering of ferns, mixed trees and is criss-crossed by tracks such as this one.
Troubled Track is a small oil painting on canvas, framed with a dark grey wooden box frame, ready to hang.
