Bawden frequently painted scenes of the Essex countryside, near to the village of Great Bardfield. He bought a house there with his good friend Eric Ravilious and often visited it as a weekend retreat. In 1935 he moved there permanently. Bawden often painted in watercolour, however he worked in an unusual way. He used non-absorbent paper so that one colour would lie over the next. He then drew and scratched over the paint layers using crayon, pencil or ink, creating an almost luminous effect.
