We are lucky enough to live within easy reach of several canals. A walk along the towpath is peaceful and timeless. The reflections of the canal side trees and rushes in the water and the view of life on the opposite bank as you pass by fields, trees and occasional villages. Each time you visit the atmosphere is changed by the season and here I wanted to capture a sunlit, summer afternoon, away from the pace and noise of the city. What interests me is not the linear definitions of individual objects – whether natural or man-made, trees or houses – but the path of light and the rejection into shadow. The fluidity and ephemeral quality of light as it changes from minute to minute, hour to hour, season to season and bring different aspects of a scene into play as it does so.

Joanna Commings artist sells her wonderful artworks online with Wychwood Art and in their contemporary gallery. Joanna says: "I was born in London. My father was an artist and I began painting and drawing from a very early age. At first my main interest was in life drawing and portraiture, which I still enjoy, but my love of landscape really began after a move to Cornwall in 2002. I saw moody, dramatic, scenery and became determined to try to express a response to it in paint. A move to Somerset in 2015 has shown me a calmer, more reflective, but equally engrossing, environment. What interests me is the effect of varying light levels, weather and seasons on the landscape. I try, through using colour as emotively as possible, to create a dramatic narrative and provoke a response. I work mainly in acrylics, which I love for their versatility, on canvas, watercolour paper or board. I am an Associate of the South West Academy and my work is exhibited at galleries in Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Hampshire."
