Recommended by Emma (Marketing & Communications Manager): "This piece immediately caught my eye due to it's bold autumnal color palette and unique vertical format. I love the simple shapes and layers of texture in the hills and trees, and in spite of the bird's eye perspective I feel as if I'm transported right into this village. This piece is full of life."
