The jewel-tone hue of the swirling pool reveals the far reaching depths of this section of the stream. On a sweltering hot summer day, the cool pool looks more than a little enticing to the tempted swimmer.
In this painting, the artist layered glazes of oil paint to add luminance to the colors. Some areas are carefully blended while others are applied with a painting knife to set in contrast the rich texture. Painted on a 10" x 10" gallery wrap canvas, the water flows around the 1.5" deep edge and adds more dimension to the piece. Wired and ready to hang, this painting may also perch on a shelf, prop on an easel, or lean on a mantel, offering many display options. All materials in this oil painting are of archival quality for lasting impressions.
