Mellow 10. An original acrylic on canvas painting, by Waterways Artist Jan Vallance. Square Canvas 16″ x 16″ and 1″ deep In neat white tray frame.
The inspiration behind the Mellow paintings.
The mellow series is based on the journey I make on my narrowboat along the leafy canal corridor through the changing seasons. The majority of the paintings are inspired by the warm green of summer and colours of early autumn. I sometimes travel with another boat and this painting captures the boat I am following disappearing through a bridge hole.
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 and because this is framed in a tray frame, the dark sides enhance the look.
Three 16″ paintings make up this part of the mellow series you can find the other two here:
