River near Salisbury

£65.00£300.00

This painting is taken from a photograph sent to me by my pal Christine, who saw this view on her early morning run, and stopped to snap it on her camera.

I really liked the composition, and after a bit of artistic license edting, this is what I painted.

The reflections were particularly appealing as they are pretty much a mirror image.

On this I have tried very hard to be broader and a bit less immediate with the marks I have made. It started off well enough with broad background under-painting, but the detail of foliage once more drew me in.

River near Salisbury Acrylic on Acrylic Board (A3 Unframed)

This painting is taken from a photograph sent to me by my pal Christine, who saw this view on her early morning run, and stopped to snap it on her camera.

I really liked the composition, and after a bit of artistic license edting, this is what I painted.

The reflections were particularly appealing as they are pretty much a mirror image.

On this I have tried very hard to be broader and a bit less immediate with the marks I have made. It started off well enough with broad background under-painting, but the detail of foliage once more drew me in.

But I think I recovered a bit with the reflections in the water.

The bit I really dislike is the tree trunk.

Otherwise It’s maybe a step in the direction of trying to loosen up a bit.
