Rennies Mill River in summer
7 x 9
Part of the pact with myself for 2011 is to create a body of work with water as the subject. I have no deadline hanging over me to do this and have completed one piece. This is a small second piece where I was was working out water movement and colours. I have a larger painting planned for another piece, not the same subject, being drawn up today.
The surface of water with all its reflections and movement is a challenge to capture. A combination of real life studies and photographs make it easier and living close to many water sources, its just a short walk or trip to find myself very close to my subject.
On this cold snowy winter day, I need a touch of summer that looking into this water provides.
