Tender Young Oaks: Sighing Softly As Summer Fades is an original landscape painting by Sally Anne and Peter Wake Jones. This piece was painted “en plein air” in Windsor Great Park. The contrasting tones of the grass and trees give the piece a warmth.

Sally Anne and husband, Peter, share a great interest in the natural environment. For the last three years, they have worked together on canvases to create a unique collection of paintings portraying the historic parkland of Windsor Great Park in its varying moods throughout the seasons. This has meant weekly visits to the park to paint en plein air (or from their people carrier, which acts as a mobile art studio). They paint together, sometimes for five or six hours, immersing themselves in the fabric of the place: the changing weather; the character of the trees; the cycle of life and decay; the flat, wide landscape. Creating these impressions, they have painted, in acrylic, large spontaneous statements infused with light. In naming these paintings, we sometimes select titles that reflect the spiritual quality of the park. It is a parkland of oaks; a tree symbolic of divine providence; a sacred tree used by ancient prophets – “oaks of righteousness growing up together towards the light. Sally and Peter are frequent visitors to the South Of France. The intense light of that region has influenced their bold use of colour and scintillating light effects seen in the work.
