Snowlocked Oil study on canvas board 10 x 12 inches
Not many at the bus stop. Dore, near Sheffield has a thick covering of snow.
(Painted from a friend's photograph).
I painted this about 2 years ago, put it aside and found it this week in a cupboard behind my painting equipment. It never got finished as other work became more pressing. Now, I don't want to 'finish' it as there is a sense of the occasion in the simplicity.
Sometimes less is more.
It is easy to overwork a piece leading to disaster.
A painter's challenge is putting it aside and leaving it alone.
