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.
