Spring on the Wyeside

oil on panel 5x8"

Spring on the river Wye
with the Builth Wells bridge and the Wyeside theatre in the background
it was hot and hazy,
felt more like France than Wales...

Another work that makes me want to get on the plane for Wales. Maybe we can trade houses for a week!?

Your landscapes are have such a quiet feeling compared to your cars, which is very appropriate. They rhythm of the arches under the bridge catch my interest immediately. Also, I you've done a great job with the color in this as it looks exactly like spring to me!

oh cooper i would love that
America is the land of my dreams
(and nightmares)
painting the blue light in Maine would be something else!

rob ijbema said...

thank you for your keen observations kim
it was vey peaceful by the river
all that was heard was the light...
aren't spring colors so nice and fresh,the time of year you can paint grass as acid green as you like especially looking into the sun.

Decided to try again today as yesterday's comment has not appeared. Like this a lot, it evokes the change in season, light after the dull days and new growth. Delightful.
