A SLICE OF ENGLAND – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1100196(1)

We were moving up and down the country recently and travelling down the east side we stopped off at St Ives near Cambridge where we lived many years ago. We took a walk along the River Ouse and I saw a number of scenes which individually had some charm and interest but I felt could be combined to give an archetypical image of England on a summer’s day.

At first I couldn’t work out how to combine the different aspects I wanted to include and then I realised I could do it with a long thin format turned on it’s side, giving a long depth of field. It was almost as if I’d cut a slice of the countryside  and served it up as a painting.

Other landscape painting is on my website : grahammcquadefineart.com

  1. So lovely! The details are very special and the light is extraordinary! I’m really enjoying how you take my eyes on a journey deep into the scene. Wonderful!
