The focus of this painting of the drawing room at Limnerslease is the window and the ghostly trees beyond, framed as a painting is framed, and perhaps contemplated similarly.

I don’t often want to paint interiors, but I was struck with the light pouring into the drawing room of Limnerslease, the home of the high Victorian symbolist painter and sculptor G. F. Watts. It was the home too of his wife Mary Fraser Tytler (who I think of as a more interesting artist than her famous husband).

Here’s another interior, a pub at Christmas – or perhaps another study of light: Trafalgar Square after a rainstorm.
