The Lost Hedgerow
Painting - Pastel On Board
I managed to paint this rural scene, in West Sussex, England, just before the old fence and hedgerow were removed and replaced with an utilitarian wire fence - what a shame! Hedgerows, as well as being of cultural and historical importance, are essential for their biodiversity and act as wildlife corridors, linking habitats for many species of animals and insects. According to the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (UK government advisers), "Hedgerows are the most significant wildlife habitat over large stretches of lowland UK and are an essential refuge for a great many woodland and farmland pants and animals."
