River at Berriew

This oil painting was started en plein air and finished later in the studio.

The river at Berriew in Mid Wales is very picturesque, with water falling over smoothed but sloping rocks, and under an arched bridge, flowing down to join the River Severn.

The day this painting was started proved very eventful. I was painting with a friend and we arrived early to set up for the day. We were looking for the perfect view of the river and the bridge, stepping from rock to rock and weighing up the scene. Sadly, I didn't pay enough attention, slipped on a rock and ended up sitting in the river up to my waist! I had to drive home sitting on a carrier bag, in order to change and come back to start again!

The painting is 55cm by 35cm and 1.5cm deep. It is painted around the edges and can be hung unframed. The painting costs £500 which includes UK delivery.
