Halstead Road in Snow was originally a Watercolour painting with pencil on paper produced by Ravilious in 1935. This has the kind of calm of snow newly fallen; just a few tracks lead you into the picture. A rare and beautiful winter Eric Ravilious landscape. Other popular Eric Ravillious limited edition prints of watercolour paintings in our range include 'The Lifeboat', 'Chalk Paths' and 'Strawberry Nets' Limited Edition fine art prints.
Tyre tracks disappear down a snow-covered lane, beside an elegant Georgian house, as if the people who made them were here just a moment ago. We are in Castle Hedingham, at the junction of Queen Street and Sheepcot Road – also known as Halstead Road – and snow is falling, large flakes covering the picture surface and pulling the eye this way and that. Ravilious was fascinated by winter, relishing the light and colours peculiar to the season, and on this occasion he hurried over breakfast so as not to miss a morning snow shower, starting a drawing outside and then finishing it in his studio.
‘Scratching the spots all over the drawing later with a penknife was a change,’ he wrote to Helen Binyon, ‘And I enjoyed it. I have in mind a series of drawings of houses in this village because in Winter they are such a lovely colour.’
