Picture of the Month for November 2022 is Britwell Span by William Redman. It was chosen from the Members Gallery by Michael Norcross.

I have often admired William’s paintings at RGA shows, quite apart from anything else, because of their sheer economy. They sing out like little gems and never fail to tap me on the shoulder and ask me: why paint such large pictures when I can tell you so much more with far less?

I love the tension in the brushstrokes, the patchwork colour, and the lines which cut across the composition with such precision they seem to be carving up time and space and pinning it down exactly with the blocks of trees and hedgerows, as if the fields and sky had been sliced up like layers of a cake.

Simply delicious!
