POST SEPTEMBER 2014

Hockney's Woldgate woods

Master class…

If you’ve ever stood before a wooded scene and tried to think about how you might capture something of the beauty you’re in on canvas, then you will no doubt have been struck by confusion - visual confusion! There is so much to see, so much that demands your attention and too much to draw or paint.

Hockney’s Woldgate woods series - this is one of ten - are a master class in sublime observation, editing and creativity. Late in July I spent a few hours in London enjoying Hockney’s work. This was the third time I’ve seen this painting firsthand (my first viewing was in 2012 at the RA). The occasion was a visual feast - and I gleaned much. This and the other pictures in this series are simply epic.

Hockney’s picture of Woldgate woods is on show now at the Annely Juda gallery in London.
