This original painting by Jonathan Speed creates an impression of a vital river scene, focusing on the ethereal reflectivity of light on the surface of electric blue water. The artist captures the beguiling qualities of the natural world, suffusing through each canvas the affinity he feels towards these untouched landscapes. A vast perspective is imparted with sensitivty to the fragility of these places in reality, implying a delicate expression that bespeaks a calming sense of fluidity. A subtle palette of earth tones expressively suggests wild foliage and untamed greenery found in the setting in gestural mark making, embracing an ebb and flow of emotion. This vista is illuminated with the indication of magical, daylight sun. This contemporary impressionist piece is painted in oils and acrylic on canvas, hand signed by the artist and framed, ready to be displayed.
