Trees on the heath - Homage to Nick Drake

Trees on the heath- Homage to Nick Drake, Oil on card, 13.5 x 8.2 cm

I was thinking about Nick Drake's song "Fruit Tree", while painting.
Maybe the fact of my being there on the little patch of heathland in Lagoa unconsciously reminded me of Drake who was photographed for his last album, "Pink Moon" on Hampstead Heath, London and who had a flat in Belsize Park, near the heath.

I shall not go to the heath for a while: I feel that I've exhausted it. The seasons don't contrast sufficiently to make frequent visits to the same location creatively fruitful, unlike in the United Kingdom.
