Trees in Spring is one of Sydney Lough Thompson’s finest small paintings. It is interesting to compare the generalised view of the work observed from a distance with the effect of looking at it close up; you will see the number of small brush strokes with which its surface is made up. Contrasting colours are often directly juxtaposed and it is this that gives the work its immediacy and freshness.
