Winter Fog: The River

WinterFog15There has been quite a lot of painting happening here the last couple of months. Brushstrokes and thin layers, glazing and blending.
Trying to find the essence of a seascape in a slow build.

The subdued colours of a day with a low sky.
A sky that settles like a whisper in your cupped hands.
A world painted by fog.

This is not the sea but there is a sense of it here in this river. An essence. There was a sea here once. It has left pieces of itself behind.

    1. I’m glad you think so, Louis. Thank you.
      The river is one of my favourite places – you probably figured that out already with all the photographs I’ve taken of it!.
