Oil on Board, 9 x 12 inches
This painting was a demonstration piece I did for the Grafham Art group today. Here it is, untouched after the two hours demo.
A simple composition, with the big tree to the right of centre and distant trees appearing bluish on the horizon - so typical of a hazy summer's day. I used old warn brushes to scrub in the drawing and the dark tones, then hog brushes for the sky and distant fields, then the 1" household brush for the foliage and vegetation, and finally hogs and Mongoose brushes for the water and weeds and lilies.
