|I think the light and shadow balance in this painting is excellent, because it actually made me feel like it was a photograph for a second. The colors are warm, and the road gives a sense of a relaxing destination ahead.|

|No Wonder the Home Counties British have always felt so at home in this sculptured and essentially man-made landscape!|
