Mown Path Oils on canvas board 5 x 7 inches
The River Board has been with mower to cut down the grass on the top and sides of high banks. Now the grass is blonde after several weeks of dry weather. There are rust coloured dried out dock flowers and thistles along the sides of the path.
I spotted the S shape as I walked with Whippet and it proved irresistable for me. When I reurned to my studio I quickly sketched the shapes and loosely painted the little study.
A flourish or two at the end with a loaded brush highlights the curves along the way.
