This calm and mellow landscape in oil is reminiscent of the pointillist works by George Seurat, where distinct dots of colour are applied in patterns to form an image. Although not strictly pointillist, this painting certainly has elements of the technique. Short and distinct strokes that have been created with just the tip of the paint brush have been used to form this composition. However, there is an added complexity – each individual stroke, though small and short, has various colours mixed and blended within the one stroke. Each stroke of paint has been applied thickly, adding a wonderful textural effect and sculptural quality to the painting. The artist has also managed to convey a distinct sense of light and dark within the picture, capturing the shadows of the winter sun within the layered composition.
The painting is housed in a beautiful distressed brown-beige wood frame with a deep profile and an inner linen slip. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.
