"Winter Sun" is an oil painting that belongs to my series dedicated to the Wendover Canal. This particular painting was inspired by a crisp winter day walk along the canal where the bright, cold sky created a stunning backdrop for the serene waterway. I used a modulation of light to capture the gentle winter light that reflected off the canal's surface and created a tonalist effect that conveyed the peacefulness of the scene. The use of yellows and blues in the painting creates a harmonious balance and adds to the overall sense of tranquillity. As an artist, I find myself drawn to the natural beauty of the Wendover Canal and the surrounding landscape, and I am constantly inspired to create works of art that capture the essence of the area. I hope that my painting, "Winter Sun," can convey the same sense of calm and beauty that I experienced during my walk along the canal.
