Shallows Oils on canvas board 6 x 6 inches
My aim was to give a sense of place in this little study. Quickly sketched in oils with a minimum of brush strokes I think there is enough detail to show the standing water on the marsh and sand. A highlight on the sandbank where the sun streaked across was the final flourish. Painted on canvas covered board with a dark sienna and ultramarine under-coat which I allowed to show through in places.
