24 November 2014:  Sunset, Heckfield, Hampshire.  Went to this beautiful place to paint a sunset and wasn’t disappointed.   A low mist descended, which made everything feel so romantic.  The downside was that it got really cold - so I was pleased to get back to my car and turn the heater on full!   I altered the tree a bit when I got back to the studio - making it more impressionistic to fit in with the rest of the painting.


Anna Boch was born in a rich Belgian family. The pointillist Théo Van Rysselberghe had a strong influence on her work in the late 1880’s and early 1890’s, but eventually she freed herself from the limitations of the pointillist style.
Anna Boch was born on 10 february 1848.
