In this painting I have tried to blur the line between realism and abstraction. There are rowers and reflections. Movement across water and energy everywhere. Hope you can see the rowers but more importantly ….feel them rowing.
This painting is my entry in the 2012 Gainsborough Greens Art Awards
UPDATE : August 2012
This entry was not accepted to be included in the competition. In fact unlike last year where all my students and myself were included this year none of us were.
I find that a little bit weird. I was particularly upset for my students who had put forward several very fine works.
Local art competitions can be like that. I am not know in the local area and reminded that even The Impressionist were rejected by the French Academy when they tried to exhibit there.
