This watercolour is a triumph of fluidity as the artist captures the immediacy nature before him. Working in the open air, Knighton-Hammond applies colour washes at speed with an instinctive feeling for light and colour creating maximum luminosity and clarity. From the reflective pond in the foreground, Knighton-Hammond uses horizontal planes to give depth depicted by the bank of the pond, field and tress beyond and ultimately to the sky.
