Autumn on the River Till, Broxholme
Oils on 140lb paper 13 x 10 inches
In a hand-painted wood frame.
An abstract view of the river near my home.
This painting has a double life...and a happy ending to what could have been rejection.
I found the painting at the back of my studio cupboard and decided to give it a second chance. Using a large brush I abstracted the image a little, added some bold strokes, light in the sky and reflections on the water. It has a relaxed feeling, winding down after summer.
The reverse has another painting...the beach at Sheringham, Norfolk.
This has been left untouched and can still be seen.
