Nowadays however, the vast majority of ancient woodlands in the UK are not managed in any serious manner.
KWES will offer an opportunity for practical work experience and employment in Kent’s ancient woodlands for ex-service personnel, young people and ex-offenders.   Many woodlands that are currently neglected will be regularly coppiced and rejuvenated to produce not just wood products but, particularly, fuel in the form of properly seasoned logs.
The three year scheme will enable KWES trainees to obtain qualifications via East Malling Research, one of the UK’s top training organisations, so that they can look forward to secure and worthwhile jobs. The Earth Partnership approach to restoring Wisconsin woodlands at school sites is built around three cornerstones-ecological restoration, community participations, and enriching education. The partnership not only restores the ecosystem but also renews the school community engaged in the healing process.

Unseasonal weather has fooled the snowdrops and daffodils into the first stages of blooming. Red and green, the traditional colours of Christmas, permeate this scene. The colours uses are Yellow Ochre, Indian Red and Cobalt Blue plus black and white. I’m reminded of the poem, Advent, by Patrick Kavanagh where he writes about adults loosing something by thinking they know everything.
Appropriately the colour which dominates this painting is purple, a colour I started to use a few months back. The colours used here were Raw Sienna (yellow), Burnt Sienna (red), Ultramarine (blue) plus Dioxaline Purple.
There is nothing as inspiring, at this time of year, than the trees as they slowly change their colour and prepare for winter. There are only 3 colours (Winsor Lemon, Burnt Sienna, Ultramarine Blue) plus black and white used here. I normally lay down layers of raw colour with solvent only and use the transparency offered by these washes as part of the final painting. So when painting the final colours I made them darker than normal and flooded the colour with loads of solvent. This water logged landscape gives very little traction to the roots of heavy deciduous trees and they fall at the first spell of very wet and windy weather. The tangle of dead branches and smooth water surface makes an interesting pattern and texture.
Three colours used again, Cadmium Yellow, Burnt Umber and Prussian Blue plus white and no black. Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email. Near the end of the painting time, I was worried about he shadow areas not been deep enough in colour.

Such woods have been in existence for hundreds of years providing timber for construction, logs for fuel and for the production of the charcoal used for smelting iron. The trees are regularly harvested by being cut back after several years almost to ground level.  The stump that is left produces several shoots which are allowed to re-grow so the tree will never die. They have close contacts with statutory bodies involved in training and apprenticeships, and with ex-service organisations.


Kent’s ancient woodlands will once again have a sustainable future and be restored to their full glory. It will also mean that the full worth of Kent’s ancient woodlands will once again be realised as vital to our environment and also a way to help reduce climate change. First to give our apprentices worthwhile jobs which, coupled with their classroom training, and experience in the ancient woodlands of Kent, will lead them to their qualifications awarded by East Malling Research.  The second aim is to regenerate Kent’s ancient woodlands to help safeguard our environmental heritage and preserve our landscapes for many generations to come. This woodland is pretty remote (no parking anywhere near and the roads in the area are crazy steep one track affairs anyway) so the woodland is pristine, it is like stepping back in time. Education through ecological restoration provides opportunites for students to develop knowledge and skills as they undertake an exciting, real-life project.
The steps below give an overview of the process, with emphasis on important factors in planning a woodland restoration.
I used a single filbert bristle and allowed the colours to fade into the next without much cleaning of the brush.
As usual I used no medium, only solvent, and even as I finished the painting, the dark shadows were beginning to go pale from the evaporation of the solvent. The subtle Cerulean when mixed with Raw Sienna or Raw Umber produces those beautiful shades of green. Like green, its a secondary colour made by mixing 2 primaries, yellow and blue for green, red and blue for purple. Its interesting to note that the colours of the background trees are practically the same as the reflections in the water.
Rich shadows, onto which the final opaque colours are painted, can achieve the depth of colour as seen in the previous painting (here).
The initial colours were not the unmixed raw colour, as in previous painting, but an opaque light blue in the sky and a grey in the foreground. I love card making, scrapbooking, any paper craft really, crochet and knitting, music, genealogy. As I was saying previously, the evaporation of the solvent was raising the tone of these dark shadows, especially any of the mixes which contained black, so I added a fresh dark brown colour into the areas which should have been the deepest shadows, just to be sure to be sure. These woodlands are also a sanctuary for more rare and threatened species of flora and fauna than can be found anywhere else in the UK.  They are often described as an irreplaceable resource.
Many also contain archaeological features  providing evidence of past land use as ancient woods were continuously managed by coppicing over the centuries. Another form of coppicing is called pollarding, where the wood is harvested at about human head height to prevent the new shoots being eaten by grazing species such as deer and sheep. The greatest threat to ancient woodland is however probably ‘neglect’ in the sense that they are not being managed at all.
Nonetheless, woodland restoration is a process that involves much more than waiting for trees to grow. If you have questions about the site or trouble accessing some information, please contact the Webmaster.
The outlook is not good for a colourful spring unless the extreme mildness lasts for another few weeks and this is unlikely.
I also used variations on these background colours to suggest the buds on the trees, The filbert shape is so versatile as I switch from flat featureless distant hazes to the impossible details of trees. You would expect this with the Raw Sienna but there is a definite unexpected green with Raw Umber, a brown colour. The little ones have no problem preparing for the celebration of the Nativity, its the arrival of Santa Clause which causes most concern. Solvent only was also the method of application and although the solvent evaporates quickly the paint layer will still be wet enough to mix with subsequent added paint layers.


This was OK for mid tones, but the deeper colours were dropped in as blobs of liquid paint. Dry brush work has a softness and does not express the detail found in a subject like this. With our little hairy dog, too many cats, hens, cockerel and two little white ducks, we home educate our children. A minor problem caused by the 2 hours + of painting time was the dark colours begin to get lighter as the solvent evaporates. Each step provides opportunities for involving students and the school community in exciting new learning experiences. A similar colour, Yellow Ochre, will give the most natural greens, mixed with Cobalt (see here).
One grandchild could not understand why Santa came down the chimney to deliver their gifts, and why he does not use the door like everybody else. For me, red includes Umbers, Burnt Sienna as well as the obvious reds like Cadmium Red and Alizarin Crimson. In this situation the liquid tends to fill the lines left by the previous brush strokes and you can get some nice random shapes. Of course in the final stages the lightest colours were added in the normal oil painting way. Old, stone built and much taller than was necessary to transverse the miserable little streams. Continually passing over the surface placing bits of colour and trying not to loose the items in the scene. I continually look for the interaction between pigments, you know, like how one pigment can enhance or kill another. Both techniques encourage new growth while allowing the sustainable production of timber and other woodland produce. Its the contrast in the texture of the paint which tells the viewer which is the solid parts and which is the fluid movement of the water surface. Even the shadows are a range of different dark colours from almost pure black to brown and green. I was using Liquin only and this is not as good as oil at retaining the deep oily dark colours. Sharp details, in the foreground tree and grasses, painted directly onto the soft under colours of the water reinforce this contrast. I try and achieve a consistency of chaotic brushstrokes, a bit like harmony of texture, over the entire surface of the painting.
For a purple to work in a painting it’s parents (the exact red and blue) must be present in the painting or it will be an alien. By the way, when you see the video (next post), notice how dark the painting becomes and for how long. As you will see in the video, even Liquin had difficulty dealing with the layers of wet paint on which I was overpainting. A winding road down to a little bridge and back up the hill on the other side would not be safe for a horse drawn wagon with 10 tons of coal or slate. The brush with the dark paint was picking up the light green of the background and no dark colour was going down.
