Lull in the Storm – SOLD

Oil on wood panel, framed.

30.5 x 40 x 5 cm

A small oil sketch inspired by dramatic sunlight and reflections after a storm one spring day in the woods. I’ve used a looser style in this work, working quickly in response to the Norfolk woodland scene with broader brushstrokes and scratching into the wet paint for the finer details. Working back to a burnt sienna ground has created a richness of colour as it peeks through the surface layers of paint.

I have used a limited palette of burnt sienna, cobalt violet, naples yellow and prussian blue. The dark shadows are a rich mix of the deeper colours.

I am fascinated with trails and pathways which cut through the woods, carving the landscape in two and exposing the trunks and silhouette of trees to a triangle of open sky, pointing the way.

Painted on a wood panel and framed with a deep edged panel frame in white, where the wood panel sits neatly in the front of a deep box frame, no glass. Ready to hang.
