When I moved from the big city to the country, nearly 10 years ago, the views around me changed dramatically. Instead of the urban panorama of building after building, occasionally interrupted by the green patch of a square or a park, I found the view had completely reversed, and instead I could see great expanses of green country, with small villages and clusters of farm buildings dotting the landscape.
There is repetition in both kinds of ‘scapes – the buildings, the roads, the green areas. The colours and shapes change, but there is a consistent overall pattern in each one.
I tried to reflect some of this country landscape - green fields and meadows, clusters of buildings, roads, and small paths – in this last challenge of cycle 4.
