A light Dusting. Painting No. 1- 2018. An original acrylic on canvas painting, by Waterways Artist Jan Vallance. Small square canvas 8″ x 8″ and .75″ deep.
The inspiration behind the original “A Light Dusting” painting.
A light dusting of snow on the Upper Peak Forest adds even more magic to my favourite canal. What’s just around the corner? That thought often that comes into my head when painting the twists and turns of the canal. Often I already know but sometimes it’s fun to imagine.
It is varnished for protection with a low sheen varnish.
The paint on this picture is built up in layers. It includes gold paint and my trademark swirls. Unfortunately the gold doesn’t show up very well in the photos. The paint is carried on down the sides of the canvas so there is no need for framing, though I think that a good deep frame enhances the picture.
