The Wye Bank at Warham

Painted, 1901

This is a view of one of the water meadows along the river Wye, a short distance from Brian's home in Broomy Hill. The artist is looking eastwards across the river, which runs at the foot of the wooded bank, known as 'Hunderton Rough'. The handling of the paint suggests that this is a 'sketch' worked in the open-air. This simple composition is aims to capture the light and mood of the scene. Brian made other more finished pictures of the same view which include grazing cattle.
