'Poplands'

2020
Commission, Framed original
44"x28" inc frame

Sold


Poplands is situated on the edge of  a lovely rural village in Herefordshire.  Once a large working farm, its historic buildings, an oast house, a threshing barn, the original old farmhouse and many smaller barns, are now all converted into separate dwellings.

I was originally commissioned to create a portrait of just the threshing barn in the centre but I wanted to place it in its natural setting, to show how it belongs to the whole of Poplands Farm.  So the finished work ended up a lot bigger than planned but luckily the barn has very big walls to display it!

I did it during the 2020 lockdown when my time was very much my own, so I had all the time in the world to indulge myself.  It's a piece of work that was a challenge and a pleasure and one I'm really proud of.

This short film using time-lapse photography, shows the making of  'Poplands' from the original drawing through all its stages to the finished work.

Sadly this piece is sold but if you would like to talk about commissioning one like it, email me
