Peddars Way IV: Portal
So, as promised yesterday, here is the next Peddars Way painting. Some of you may be thinking, ‘Hang on, hasn’t there been a Peddars Way IV already??‘ Well, yes, there was – Hornbeam – but I decided that painting didn’t really work, and wasn’t up to being in the series. Consequently, I re-numbered the last one, ‘Harpley Dams’, as the new number three, and this one is the new number four.
The dictionary says ‘portal’ means a doorway, or gateway, so I called this painting Portal because we had been walking through a section of the path with tall trees and hedges on both sides, and at this point we came out into a more open stretch, where we could see into the distance – it seemed like a kind of doorway. It was quite near the southern end of the part of the Peddars Way known as Procession Lane.
There is one more Peddars Way painting to come, which will be called ‘Sunset’, and will be quite different from anything I’ve painted before . . . . . !
I got started on my next dinghy painting this afternoon – ‘Dinghy on the Falling Tide’ – another West Mersea dinghy. Lots to do! 🙂
