8x6" acrylic on canvas board. SOLD
at that, a painting! I won't say my art block has lifted but I've got a
couple little canvases I'm happy with. This is a scene of the canal in
Yorkshire I've painted several times before- this is it at night, lit by
the moon. I took a wander up late in the evening and it was very
peaceful- I did a plein air study, realised it was getting dark, packed
up and turned around to see this view. Luckily I took some photos so I
could paint it later.
This piece is really about exploring the
light and subtle colour of the scene, rather than capturing detail.
There are some nice visible brushstrokes in the light areas, especially
in the sky.
