Having been looking through my orchard pictures from a few years ago, I found a couple of my earlier compositions.
These appeared to focus on an old mobile unit left in one of the larger orchards, perhaps originally intended as a store or shed for use by the growers and pickers. Now, it was gradually receding into the expanding hedgerow, windows probably breached by bored local youths for some target practise. It was definitely getting more visually interesting to me as it was being less practically useful to the farmer.
This was obviously an evening walk, the colours and shadows look to me like it was perhaps at the ‘golden hour’ of a summer evening, a time just before sunset where the light is low but warm, and casting longer shadows than the full, more direct glare of daytime.

I have put versions of these on my Redbubble store, just in case anybody fancies pictures of peeling paint on corrugated iron, or shattered windows on a caravan, as some decoration in their home. Just tell anyone thinking you’re odd it’s art, and they’re obviously not clever enough to get it… that’s how the professional critics do it.
A not-very-subtle reminder that I have shops, at
Redbubble and Pixels,
where there are a selection of my images in all sorts of buying options
(Art, Canvas and Framed prints, and the popular greetings cards and notebooks)
It only takes a couple of small sales to keep the site ad-free, so do have a look if you have time. Thanks.
