A few years ago I spent some time with a friend driving about the South Virginian waterways looking at the sights, exploring backwaters and painting. It was a memorable time and important for me as it made me appreciate the Eastern Shore and brought an understanding to my work that hadn't been there before. This is one of the paintings to come out of that trip and I remember some amazing sunsets that has inspired me to paint more skies. In this work, I have concentrated more on the reflection of the late evening clouds and kept the colors reduced to a limited palette. For me, there is no better experience than being out in nature seeing things first-hand and now that the weather is beginning to warm up, I'll be out painting that much more. This oil is 9" X 12". SOLD.
I am an artist living and working near Washington DC in the USA. I was born in the UK but have lived abroad most of my life. I paint mostly landscapes and birds but have many interests so you never know what will turn up. Most of the paintings shown here are for sale so please contact me at jeremypearse (at) gmail.com if interested. Thanks for visiting!
