River Wensum, Norwich on Acrylic Board (A3 Unframed)
I have to be very honest and admit that I saw this, as a photograph of The River Wensum, in Norwich,, shared on Social Media. It’s a view of my much loved home city, and an image I know well. I thought it was a super photograph and it just captured that part of the old city with which I was once so familiar. When `I lived thereI took it ll for granted, and now I live a distance from it, I miss it immensely.
As I had no intention of duplicating the photograph itself I felt sure that it wouldn’t cause any offence if I used it for a painting. I loved the reflections of the foliage and buildings in the water, although before I started the painting, I had no idea just how much trouble they would cause me to paint them.
But paint them I have, and I really enjoyed battling with the reflections in the river On this painting there was a weeks break in between the first couple of days work on it, and then resuming it. That caused immense problems.upon returning to it, I found it so difficult to get back into it again, and on day three of the return, had to repaint most of what I had already done to get it in order. I battled with it throughout, but in the end felt reasonably happy.
