“A river seems a magic thing. A magic, moving, living part of the very earth itself.”
Oil on linen, 12 x 16 inch (30 x 41 cm)
The brief for this commission was “a Scottish salmon leaping out of the fast moving river”. I am pleased to say the receiving person, a passionate fisherman, loved the final result, so I am very happy. It was the first time I had the chance to paint water, and I loved the challenge.
Painted in February 2019.
