River Stones 2 palette knife painting

River Stones 2 oil palette knife painting
6x6" on 1.5cm gallery wrapped canvas

Apologies for my absence from blogging. Summer is a hiatus for me where painting is concerned as we have lots of visitors and my granddaughter comes to stay. Add to that, builders at the beginning of summer and maybe you will forgive me.

About this painting
A small stream near home that turns into a raging river after storms and when the ice in the mountains melt. The level can rise by about 4 metres. It is so hard to photograph the blues and turquoises to give the true colours of the painting, but it looks better in real life.

How it looks displayed on a mini easel

I will try to post my long awaited report about the plein air workshop I attended in the French Alps with Richard Robinson over the next couple of days.
