One of our neighbours down the valley put in this pine plantation quite a few years ago and it always reminds me of castle battlements. I think I like it best when it is surrounded in mist and rain in winter but this evening they looked particularly black and threatening with the shadows running down the hill.
I had to add a bit of colour to relieve the sombre tones.
I did nothing but wash clothes and clean the house so was glad to sit for a few minutes during my walk to do this.

If it were 'Untitled' I wonder what we would make of it. It's a bold abstract kind of picture.
It's good to have metaphors/ symbols/ comparisons in our painting - even do a couple of variations and go a bit surreal by suggesting battlements with those narrow windows?
