Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

This is a painting of an unusual and enigmatic feature of the landscape in the north of England. The wood depicted on the horizon sits isolated in marshland and is one of the few 17th century duck decoys remaining in the UK. Impossible to access without permission and home to an enormous colony of cormorants it is a sinister and lonely place. Painted in oils, I have kept the foreground and loose and free, but the drowned and blasted trees in the decoy are painted with far greater precision.
