Through the Trees, Runswick

Through the Trees, Runswick by Mark Senior

Oils on board, 8¾"x11".

Bears label verso: 'I, Alice Senior, widow of the late Mark Senior, certify that the sketch to which this label is attached is the work of my late husband. 1927.'.

I find this picture very intersting to compare with Mayor's work. Both seem to work on the sky last, painting it on top of the trees when, of course, it is really behind them. Lower down we look through branches to the sea at Runswick on a bright Summer's day. The figure of a fisherman can be seen crouching in the shadow at the base of a tree. It is painted in Senior's typical palette.
