In November I posted a couple of paintings of New Cut Lane. This lane, in the painting above, runs parallel with it across the moss, inland, to higher ground. The land is fertile and has shrunk below the road leaving a big drop for those who miss their way. Segars lane is narrower than New Cut Lane and there are passing places along it. One is visible in the mid ground in the painting.
The pictures of New Cut Lane were contre jour which bestowed mystery and dynamism. Here the day is a little older and the light is coming from the right, burning off the morning mists and bestowing a calmness.
Other landscape paintings and those of the Southport moss can be found on my website:
