Simplicity




 
                              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.
