Emma Lavinia Hardy, The Blackmore Vale, 1890


Photobucket
Here's a curiosity for you, a painting by Thomas Hardy's wife of the Blackmore Vale in North Dorset. This is my home territory, I live just above this Valley. So does this amateurish painting give an accurate impression of it? Well, yes and no. It is actually rather prettier than that, and (nowadays at least) there are more trees. Some photographs from the net under the cut. The second gives my customary perpective, that's the corner of my village.
