Bottisham Lock pumping station – 2


Oil 12"x8"

I finished this off  in the studio today. I struggled with the water and had several shots at scumbling it over where it had got too detailed and then worked into it again. Overall OK I think. The people and the dog make a difference.

I wanted the sky to look a bit chunky and the water more soft and this aspect worked well.

  1. Nicely done. The strong, powerful colors really work here and I am slowly learning how important it can be to add people or animals to a painting. Thank you for reenforcing this one more time.
