Artist's Description

“December Dawn”
Original watercolour
By
Glenn Marshall
20” x 16”
Painted on Saunders Waterford 140lb CP paper with Winsor & Newton artists paints
I did a couple of painting demonstrations during our ‘Double Vision 2014’ exhibition. This is one of them and I was pleased with the way it turned out.
This is the second time I have painted this particular scene so I was familiar with the composition. The first time was as part of my ‘Inspirations’ series and was set in the height of summer. ‘Inspirations’ was a set of classes I ran where I invited students to explore the work of great artists who have inspired me. They included Turner, Constable, Pissarro, and Atkinson Grimshaw among others. They were not meant to be straight copies of course but it was an opportunity to try and work in the style of these great artists. It was fascinating to study the originals and try to work out their techniques. It was very inspiring for me and all the students who took part and our admiration for these masters only increased. I worked from my original sketch for what was now to be a snowscape. I masked some areas and the sheep so I could work very freely on the rest of the painting. I wanted to capture the pale winter sunlight reflecting on to the snow on the road so simply allowed the colours to run down. The strong vertical telephone poles automatically lead you down the road towards the snow covered moors in the distance. I used just four colours which give the painting a nice harmonious look and once again the paint and the water did most of the work…just how I like it.
