'On seeing this watercolour again after many decades, the artist didn't at first recall the circumstances in which he had painted it. But a few seconds later memory came flooding back: "I was interested in this grass growing through the snow, and the shapes it made. It was a favourite spot of mine on the Downs in Kent, and I came here often down the main road from Bromley. Now, look at those rooks – and I suppose that must be a hare. I think this is a very pleasant one." Indeed, the mixture of care and spontaneity in many of the washes, particularly the distant subtle tones in the beech forest on the hill, make this a very pleasing watercolour.' (Chris Beetles, S R Badmin and the English Landscape, London: Collins, 1985, page 81)
