The scene was inspired by a family walk along the Ridgeway in the Chiltern Hills, and this oil on board captures the beauty of that moment.
The image projects a sense of peace and security as if the ridgeway is a sanctuary from the worries of the recent pandemic. The synchronous steps and similar poses of the couple walking on the grass path show deep complicity and affection between them.
The head of the woman slightly turned towards her elder companion is a tender gesture of attention and respect, as if he is imparting a story of his life or giving her a suggestion on how to solve a problem.
It is a beautiful reminder of the power of connection and love, even in the midst of difficult times.
