Ancient Woodland

The Ancient woodland of chalk downs, where Hampshire and Wiltshire meet, is a magical place. From the top edge of this wood you can see Stockbridge Down, Danebury Ring, and other hill top strongholds. Walking through the woods you have a sense of other travellers, others walking through and working in the space. Coppicing and charcoal burning, for example, is still practised as it has been for centuries.

This is an exciting way to learn about oil painting.
