I was asked to do this painting of a local scene here in the Somerset village of Pilton where I live. Although rather idealistic, it is fairly close to what the fields around my house are like. Long rolling hills separated by hedges, stretching out to the Quantock Hills, then Exmoor, and finally the sea beyond that.

These fields tend to be small in modern standards, and are stuffed with sheep, cows or some crop or other just as they have been for the last couple of thousand years.

A bit about this tractor

Pilton is situated on the edge of the Somerset Levels. Although dry now, the base of the village (thought to be known as Pooltown) was a shallow lake and naturally legend has it that it is yet another place where Joseph of Arimathea and possibly Jesus landed in Britain.

The area is full of these legends. A few miles down the road is Glastonbury Tor and Abbey on the ancient Isle of Avalon. The now ruined Abbey still has the grave of King Arthur clearly marked out. And if it is marked out then he must be there, stone never lies.

In the Doomsday book written over a thousand years ago, Pilton had 300 villagers in the parish. Today we have 900. So all in all changes are very slow around here.

What is a giclee print?

Giclee is a very high quality print process used by galleries and artists for exclusive limited editions. This Giclee process uses 12 true pigment artist colours (ultra marine, ochre etc) rather than the standard four dye colours in normal printing, so Giclee delivers greater depth in colour, tonal values and no yellowing over time.
