Nutshell Bridge, Stroud Canal; acrylic 6×4 inches

Having now found a frame for my Marmalade Rudbeckias, I am sorting the framing for my other exhibition-intended pictures.

This painting almost didn’t happen. It began life as a semi-abstract landscape-style layout, which became too dark and was systematically scraped down then overpainted with deep blue-grey. Using the resulting […]
