Salisbury Water Meadows (3) (8 inch x 10 inch oil on canvas) (Unframed)
This is the last in the series of three small paintings of Salisbury Water Meadows. This one is the only oil in the set of three, and I particularly wanted to do this in oils as I felt that the texture of the old brickwork would paint better and be more effective in oils. I also wanted to capture the effect of the straw like reeds on the banks, which I thought might be more effective painted in oils.
Overall I am pleased with the colours and the fact that the brushwork turned out to be pretty much as I hoped it would be.
Time to move on the a larger acrylic and a nw subject.
