The Ancient Spell is a semi abstract magical landscape painting of the view through a woodland to a ridge of hills beyond. It is 36x30x1.5 inches oil on canvas. Under the trees you can see a hint of foxgloves and other wildflowers and the leaves of the trees are glowing and verdant. In the middle of the ridge of hills beyond there is a bump on the horizon that is actually the clump of trees on Chanctonbury Ring -an iron age fort on the South Downs. The is an actual place I found whilst walking though farmland in June. It was a warm day and nature was in abundance with wildflowers and fields and patches of woodland all around. There was an atmosphere in this particular wood that seemed quite ancient and very welcoming which is why the painting appears to show portals and strange shapes hinting at an element of magic. Painted on deep edge canvas, white, edges, ready to hang and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
