Water nymph

water nymph

oil on panel ・ 12 × 16″

This is one of a small series of works done in the summer of 2019. The figure in water has been a theme I’ve returned to in my work over time. In these series I had become more directly focussed on the formal exploration of the female figure within the implied chiaroscura offered by the enclosing water. This is a direct reference to a conscious identification with a northern tradition which coloured all my works this year.
 
These works are limited to a 12 × 16″ format and are done in oil on canvas.
