Rainclouds towards Hevingham Church

About the project

Rainclouds towards Hevingham Church


Artist – Nial W. Adams – 2016

Medium – Oil on Canvas

Size – 20″ x 16″ Landscape

Description –


Towards the end of Winter, with Spring just around the corner, storm clouds come and go.  After the rain, when the fields around my home village of Hevingham are still wet, the clouds form on the horizon and once again the sky is blue.

This oil painting depicts a typical scene of rural Norfolk. And for me, living in the country, this is very much how I see the world. Even on grey days, there is still a good reason look out and look up.

With open fields and long vistas, a small church on the far horizon. Big billowing cloud formations, lit by the creamy afternoon light. Here the view is from local fields towards Hevingham church.

This is a modest painting and designed to remind the viewer of ‘home’, the fine county of Norfolk. Presented on a stretched canvas and painted Alla Prima (‘all at once’ or in one sitting). In this original artwork I’ve tried to capture the fresh and vibrant colours of the landscape after the rains.


This original landscape oil painting is presented unframed, with various framing options available. If you are interested in this theme but on a larger scale, please ask me about commissioning a work based on this piece.
