Stunning.


Comment by Fred Mason on 6th April 2015 at 09:05
Good one, Mike.

One of favourite places in Wigan. I remember it before Heinz was built and it was a special place back then, when I was a kid.


Comment by Giovanni on 6th April 2015 at 10:33
Well done Mike a beautiful shot. Right folks get ready for a painting lesson!
On canvas board with acrylics a yellow ochre wash with touch of crimson with burnt umber for the trees and foreground!
Bellissimo!

What lovely colours, one to frame I think!


Comment by britboy on 6th April 2015 at 13:22
Same here Fred...spent hours in Porters Wood, remembered before Heinz was built. Tree climbing and playing in the stream making dams,floating bits of stick in the water.

It was a more innocent time, not a care in the world, bottle of corporation pop and jam butty in tow.


Comment by Mary on 7th April 2015 at 17:40
Fred / Britboy, you paint a wonderful picture before my time. Is there anything in the archive does anyone know, before Heinz,s that shows this landscape. Porters wood, will always be a treasure to me


Comment by Lizziedownunder on 7th April 2015 at 22:23
Stunning shot Mike...well,done...cheers!!!


Comment by derek callaghan on 8th April 2015 at 19:48
My sentiments exactly Fred. Going to Porters Wood with bottle of water and the inevitable sugar butties. Sometimes condensed milk, brilliant day out when we were 10. Super picture
