Waterford River I

Waterford River I
5 x 7  oils


I was up very early this morning, unable to sleep so I started another in the series of hidden river paintings that I am working on.

This is a glimpse of the Waterford River that flows directly into St. John's Harbour.  As it nears the harbour, there are several foot bridges that cross it, allowing pedestrian traffic across and the river widens and slows until it reaches the dry dock and disappears underneath into the harbour water.

I liked the mix of industrial and natural elements in the image, as well as the light of a cloudy day reflecting on the water.  The painting is 5 x 7 on canvas panel and painted in oils.
