“My transformation from an abstract artist to realist style painter happened after seeing an exhibition of Andrew Wyeth paintings. The rural countryside around Chadd’s Ford, Pennsylvania, which Wyeth depicted, was very similar to the area where I chose to live … a world of traditional family farms and scattered forests. Here was an artist who used abstract forms in his compositions but cared about the particularity of the actual surface of his world.
In this painting I examined the texture of the ploughed field etched by snow and the rolling forms of the forest in winter.” Robert Bateman
