River Cam below Jesus Green, Cambridge

Acrylic on board  (Circa A3 ) (Unframed)

This is the second image taken from when I visited Cambridge for a few days in very early spring. Although sunny and clear, it was very cold, but the light gave the impression of summer.

I dislike this work, which is reflected in the ‘come and buy me’ price tag. It’s OK as a composition, but it got messy as I painted it. It feels scruffy and rather careless. Bits of it are OK,  but overall, I don’t care for it. If nobody wants it for a ‘knock-down’ price, I’ll hide it away.

It’s just a few hundred yards along The River Cam from where the last painting was made. An extension, I think, of Victoria Avenue, and below Jesus Green. There’s a very fine (slightly expensive) Italian restaurant nearby, but that’s got nothing to do with the picture. I walked across this bridge several times each day when I stayed in the city. I always thought it was an interesting aspect of the river, but for me, the painting doesn’t reflect that very ell.
