Five years on, Cross revisited his earlier work on Hall's Wood (TC55), completed during Cross' time as Lecturer in Fine Art at University of Reading.
'I worked with students on an introductory course in Fine Art, together with Terry Frost and Rita Donagh, following teaching ideas that had been developed by Victor Passmore and Richard Hamilton, then working in other parts of the country' (Tom Cross: A River and Some Landscapes, Hallsgrove, 2005, p118).
