Artist's Description

“At Eventide”
Original Watercolour by Glenn Marshall
30” x 22”
Painted on Saunders Waterford 140lb CP White with Winsor & Newton artists paints
This is based on a huge oil painting by a now forgotten Victorian artist – Benjamin Williams Leader.
He was a member of the Royal Academy and very famous in his day. It is the classic Victorian subject with undertones of morality. The ploughed fields remind us how dependent we are on the land but the flooded fields that reflect the lovely sunset are a warning about the vagaries of nature. And the final reminder of course concerns our mortality and the ultimate destination for us all epitomised by the shaded graves. The moral then – work hard and enjoy the rewards but watch out for the pitfalls and ultimate fate that befalls us all!
I was recently selected to be part of a touring art installation featuring ten artists from around the world. This was one of the paintings chosen to be part of the exhibition which began in the Winter Gardens, Lower Manhattan, New York before moving to the Allen Centre, Houston, Texas finally ending up in Montreal, Canada. Naturally I was proud to be part of this prestigious exhibition from a personal point of view but equally satisfying is the fact that traditional watercolour paintings still have a part to play even in this digital age.
