MORNING ON THE MOSS – ACRYLIC PAINTING

picture of segars lane a single track road across halsall moss looking into the sun out across  fields with the powerlines disappearing into the distance past a copse of trees.

A more traditional rendering of the local landscape than my previous blog, but both show the topography of the flat moss. Here the road – Segars Lane, a single track road – hovers above the drained marshland which is now fertile arable land. It gradually splays and slides into the fields below, causing it to undulate in the process. Then the road is reinforced and the process starts again. Roads, crows and powerlines cross the land. Here the powerlines take a shortcut into the sun on a bright summer`s morning.

MIST ON THE CANAL – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

A long format for a view of the Leeds to Liverpool canal on a cool autumn morning. It is a favourite angling spot of a friend of mine who catches more objects than fish from these waters.

A NIP OF FROST ON PLEX MOSS LANE – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

There isnt much across the moss – drained marshland behind the coastal dunes. Even less when the lowland is blanketed with mist and all you can see is a ghostly tree and a row of staggering poles. This was done with loose washes and then a bit of drybrush in the foreground.
