This small canvas was painted in the grounds of the Brunel University campus at Runnymede. After making a drawing to determine the shapes within the composition, the artist made this painting in situ placing the horizon close to the top of the painting, with various shadows making diagonal patterns that criss-cross the slopes of Cooper's Hill. Seeing frost and autumn leaves on the grass slopes provided the initial motive for the work and contributed to the flat character given to the hill landscape.
