Wetland   Oils on canvas board  5 x 7 inches

Light patterns on wet ground.

Studio Musings...

This is an old picture re-worked into another landscape.

Part of the fun of making art is experimentation.
Using something like an old board, it doesn't matter if it fails.

The existing image can be a starting point.
This picture has traces of moorland and sky which I kept.

Next, I had to decide if it would be an estuary, beach or fields.

A little imagination and ten minutes later there was
 a suggestion of marsh, sandbank and a wet surface.
There might be a small tarn in the distance.

Sweeps of lighter paint from left to right give a v formation.
These lead my eye up to the horizon whilst the foreground
 has an impression of standing water and reflections.

One for the studio...demonstration box.
