Metisse Motorcycle Commission and UK Landscapes

I received a commission which sent me to Oxfordshire and Surry, England to paint paintings which had Motorcycles made by Metisse. In the six days I was away I created eight 9x12 oii paintings in six days.

This is the first.  It  is a plein air nocturne I created about 2am outside the 16th Century Trout Inn, where I was residing for a few days. It was quite cold and damp, but I wa inspired  to paint the clearing skies, and view the silent moon setting over the Cotswolds.
