Damp Day

Oil on Board, 7.5 x 10 inches

Here's another one of the River Windrush near Burford, on a damp, flat-light day, very remeniscent of the days of January and December that we have all seen lately. Days like this don't necessarily have the wow factor that the brightly-lit landscape has, but they have their own charm, and every type of landscape deserves its own depiction, and soft greys and browns describe this sort.

Slow-moving water such as this is relatively simple to paint, by describing the milky water with downward and horizontal brushstrokes of the local colour, blended here and there with a few judicious horizontal swishes.
