Oil, 3.625 x 5 inches
Painted after fresh snowfall from the road down to the River Welland from Tinwell village, this view shows the ruins of Wothorpe Towers standing starkly against the early morning sky. There is hardly any pure white as can be seen comparing the snow colour against the white border of the photo. Lots of subtle blues and mauves mixed from my usual primaries of Cad Yellow Light, Permanent Rose and Cobalt Blue with Titanium White.
This is the last of the tiny paintings for now, six in all, so if you want a Christmas present priced painting (£225) get on down to Stamford Artists Gallery in Maiden Lane in Stamford. The Gallery doesn't have a website, but you can call them on 01780 764074 to enquire about availability.
