Romantic bridge in the Lake District

Romantic bridge in the Lake District

This oil painting was done for my nephew and his wife for their Wedding present. It was ‘Their Bridge’ where he proposed to her. I first did them a picture in pen and ink (which is also on this site) but also wanted to try out a recent technique I had been using to paint in oils. Quite simply, I got a cereal box and ripped it into thin strips, squeezed out some oil paints onto a pallet, and painted!  No brushes or pallet knives were used in the making of this picture! And the whole picture which is only approx 14″ x 10″ was done in less than two hours, though it did take almost three months to dry!!!
