River Thames in Winter


Snow at Marlow, oil painting by Roy Connelly

I painted this last winter.  I have posted it today because it features in an article I wrote on plein air painting in winter that has just been published in The Artist magazine.

Its quite big for a plein air painting, 20 x 36 inches on stretched linen, and it was painted in a single rather cold session.

Winter painting by the Thames at Marlow. Roy ConnellyAbove: A very early stage in the painting.  I have very roughly blocked in the main areas of the composition.

The painting above is for sale at £2,000. Contact me for more details.

    Cracking good painting Roy, especially considering the size en plein air – very brave!

    Thanks, Peter. I often find that working on a large scale when its cold is easier than working on something small and fiddly.

    Very impressed with this painting and that it was done in one session. Well done.
