Quiet River - Guildford

A commission request for a very large, scenic landscape painting posed a new challenge as it was the biggest ever attempted. The scene, a familiar place, was chosen, having been painted several times before...... immediately eliminating the need to re-design a new composition. To the existing features, I added some points of interest such as the boat and bridge in the background - which helped to fill the enormous space. Oil on canvas 33" x 57" (83 x 144 cm)

  3. Wow, I would love to see this in real life in all it's glory Alice. Beautiful scene and such lovely colour work.

  4. To Graziella, Carla, Graziano and Frank ..... thankyou very much for your kind comments.
    This was the only painting that I couldn't fit into my hatchback car .... after framing. The frame on this was another 6" deep around. :)

  5. Hello Alice, excelent composition and colors!
