heading south - new abstract landscape painting

"Heading South" - abstract landscape painting


At first glance this painting seems to be almost monochrome, a calming and serene blue and white. A closer look reveals a rich layering of colour, creating a depth to the water in the foreground.

The sweep of birds over the mountains is a contrast to the calm of the blue lake and, along with the vintage postcard image, represents a journey at the change of seasons.
