Breaking Ice by Glenn Marshall


Available to buy on…

A reminder of a crisp winter’s day. We were walking near Easingwold and noticed that the ice on the pond was starting to melt – have to admit – this was NOT painted on the spot!
20″ × 16″ watercolour painted on Saunders Waterford 140lb NOT with Windsor & Newton artists paints.

As a painter of light, legend and landscape I am indebted to the wonderful medium of watercolour which gives me the versatility to incorporate many different styles in to my work.
