Oil Painting 2 – Westport Lake

By Rob Pointon

Westport Lake

This painting was produced stood amongst the friendly ever-growing flock of Canada Geese who are waiting for the next Stokie to come and deliver the bread or chips. It was painted over 2 sessions, the second was later in the day and the sun was much further round so the shadows have shifted. I like this history in the brushwork and evidence of time passing whilst the image is produced. Our boat was moored on the Trent and Mersey Visitor Moorings that run the length of Westport Lake, it is a lovely spot to stop off at and have an ice cream.
