‘Heron in the Reeds’1998
18" x 14" including frame
I live beside the beautiful Langollen Canal in Shropshire which, being a contour canal is often like a meandering river as it makes its way up to Langollen. It is fed by water coming from the River Dee at the Horseshoe Falls so it also has a flow like a river. Herons are often to be seen just as this one is, fishing amongst the bullrushes at the edge of the water.
I have cracked the wax, both in the water and the sky, to let subsequent colours in to give the marbled texture.
