The Search III
Oil on wood panel
28 x 36 x 0.5 cm
The Search III is the third oil painting of the Beast from the East 2018 and depicts a figure walking beside the partially frozen river Bure in Norfolk, UK. I used a limited palette of 4 colours to create the almost monochromatic scenery typical of a snowy day.
I have used a favoured technique of mine of scratching finer detail into the wet oil paint, as seen in the detail photos, for the bare tree branches, details in reflections in the water and for grasses peeking out from under the snow on the river bank.
Painted on a solid beech wood panel, signed on the back.
Sold unframed, lovingly double wrapped and posted in a cardboard box.
