Oil Painting 10 – Reflection Study, Preston Brook/Tewkesbury

By Rob Pointon

Preston Brook/Tewkesbury

A quick small study from the front of the boat. Only an hour and a half’s work in Preston Brook to begin with, searching for an unconventional composition. I struggled with the close proximity sitting in the front of the boat, which is a worry as I was thinking of doing a lot from this position over the year. I revisited and developed the study further in Tewkesbury, painting out two boats and transforming the vista to a cropped view of the arched bridge over the River Avon in Tewkesbury.
