This piece is the earliest known work from the Heath Pasture. It coincides with the approximate time he discovered the deserted plot of land. Although we have no image of this chalk drawing we can guess that it was a similar vantage point featuring the hills in the background.
Burnt Hill and the Heath Pasture was one of Woodward's most favorite places in the world as evident of how frequently it was the subject of his work. Even before he purchased the 80 acres of pasture and hill and build a studio he called the 'Pasture House,' he would visit it for a number of years prior to paint or draw.
