Willows By The Welland

Oil on board, 10 x 14 inches

I did this painting as a demo for Horncastle Art Group, not quite finishing it in the allotted 2-hour slot, but finished off today back in the studio.

Being a typical summery painting of my local river in one of its more quiet stretches, it was really another exercise in observing the multitude of greens in such a scene, and to replicate them to give the painting variety and a sense of reality. All the vegetation and tree work was executed with my big 1" Windsor Household paintbrush, making headway quickly with the minimum of fuss and creating the illusion of far more detail than was actually applied.


  1. Peter welcome back and two wonderful paintings always a joy to see. Ve

    1. Thank you Ve! I'm doing a snowy one now just to shock!
