Like Walter Withers, Jane Price was interested in the mood, the light and the colours associated with the seasons. Her works are tranquil, and her palette for her oils, is often that of soft pastel shades. This is a typical example of her later works, where she has used soft blues and greens, and has captured the new blossom on the trees and the warmth, associated with spring. Note once again her use of the distant heightened horizon line, which she used as a device, in many of her works.
