This extensive landscape is dominated by the large tree in the foreground. The decorative foliage is very rich in form and colour. Knighton-Hammond gives the picture depth through its successive horizontal planes from the band of light green grass and shadow of the tree in the foreground, the bright green grass band in local colour running into the deep blue atmospheric landscape beyond to the horizon where it meets the sky with its ever-changing moods. One can feel the movement of the sunshine across this landscape which adds to the strength of colour in Knighton-Hammond’s descriptive of observed nature.
