During the late 1920s Hitchens was drawn to the landscape of Shropshire and the Welsh Marches and in 1928 he spent some time painting in the area between the Wrekin and the Severn, at Leighton and Cressage. A few years later, he painted at Hampton Loade on the river Severn, near Bridgnorth in Shropshire. Around this time, the work of Cézanne and George Braque began to influence Hitchens. His early paintings, including 'A Shropshire Landscape', were often more directly related to the landscape he observed, with his later works becoming more abstracted and lyrical.
