WINTER DAWN - 25x30cm - acrylic oncanvas - £80

Posted by PicasaThis painting started life from an idea in a painting book and then got scraped back to its bare bones. From then on it took on a life of its own. Although I haven't actual been to this imaginary place, I have been there in essence for all the elements of the painting are known to me very well but not in this one place.
One thing I do like to do in my work every so often is to scratch back to previous layers, more often than not real jems are revealed.
I look at this scene and know that it is quiet, serene, still, full with natural sounds, cold yet not unpleasant ... but why.
