This painting depicts a winter scene and is based upon some photographs I took the last time we had a major snowfall in South Yorkshire, England. My wife and I spent some time strolling along the River Ryton near Bawtry. However, it is largely made up out of my imagination.
I have made use of a number of golden sections in the composition, notably the vertical positions of sun, oak tree, distant church and swan.
My favourite dog, Oscar, makes an appearance again, this time taking a lady for a walk through the snow.
