Oil on canvas (framed) This is the second of the two paintings of the River Itchen in Woolston, Southampton. I really like the composition of this one, and I was really pleased with some of the painting, which for me, is quite unusual. I was fascinated with trying to capture the effects of the light on the water, and I feel I have managed to capture this quite well. I also very much liked the forlorn appearance of the moored trawler sitting alone mid water. I enjoyed painting this one more than anything I have done for ages.
THIS PAINTING WAS ACCEPTED FOR THE NATIONAL OPEN EXHIBITION OF THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF MARINE ARTISTS, 2014, AT THE MALL GALLERY, LONDON.
