Iron Age fort in the landscape

Here's another recent painting, based on the patterns to be found in the landscape.

The Fort

Acrylic on canvas, 50 x 50cm.

The inspiration for this is the Iron Age fort on the summit of Mount Caburn near Lewes. At the top right of the picture is the outline of the fortifications is at the top right; then paths and groups of trees follow down the hill to the A27 and fields at the bottom. I like the combination of a feature that has been in the landscape for thousands of years with the new road, which has been recently remade.
