Walking in a Van Gogh Winter Landscape


The land around Sandwich is very flat; much of it was under the sea less than a thousand years ago, so it makes excellent links for the golfers. On a day of showers, like yesterday, it is reminiscent of the Low Countries and Millet Van Gogh’s winter landscapes. A different sort of beauty; the low light glistening on the puddles and wet railings; it’s just the bright green of the winter wheat that those two artists might not have seen so often in the 19th Century. It really is bright!
