Byron’s Pool Walk, along the River Cam and Trumpington Meadows

23rd October, 2018

Byron's Pool nature reserve, along the River Cam and Trumpington Meadows

My aim with this painting, was to capture the transient light and the feeling I experienced in the landscape, and I intentionally used large expressive brushstrokes, a limited palette and allowed the ochre ground to shine through in places.

The painting is of a scene along the River Cam and Trumpington Meadows up river from Byron’s Pool (named after Lord Byron who used to swim at the weir pool). I have many happy memories of Byron’s Pool nature reserve, playing there as a child, then later taking my own children and our dog to explore the wood and river.
