Ruined Arch

8 x 10 inches - oil on gessoboard - I painted this from a photo that I took a few years ago in KEW gardens in the UK. This is a folly, which just means its a structure with no use other than decoration. Apparently, it was once used as a bridge to bring cattle into enclosed pastures in the garden. It is made of brick and clad with stone.
