Detail from "A winter morning light", Nottinghamshire.

This oil painting is all about the light... to have light it needs something to contrast against it, in this case the deep shadow along the waters edge and the snow covered trees/bushes on the right hand side in shadow but thankfully that's broken by patches of sunlight snow and the foreground branches that break up the area.

The water was a real joy to paint... with the reflections, some parts in sun, some in shade and as normal done wet into wet over the base layer.
