I live just a ten minute walk from the tunnel of trees made famous by David Hockney in his marvellous landscapes of the Yorkshire Wolds. I have painted the classic view of the tunnel from Langtoft Road but this is the view from the other side looking towards the road. We had strolled up the green lane to Broach Hill and got marvellous vistas of the Yorkshire Wolds including our delightful little village of Kilham where we now live. On the way back down the green lane I realised that the tunnel was just as ‘paintable’ from this side looking back. The idea was to try and capture the warm spring light bathing the trees and hedges with the sharp contrast of the shadowed side. I think this is a lane I will be returning to on many occasions!
