My favourite beech hedge, blown sideways for decades by the near-permanent winds which rush along the valley. Inspiration for this print started with a trip out to visit the hedge in spring, when the new leaves were acid green and unfurling.
Windswept took nine layers to create, each laid carefully over the previous one to build up the luminosity and depth of colour I see in new beech leaves.
