When I first saw the photo that I used as a reference for this painting I was immediately taken by the composition, colours and depth of the image. Luckily for me it taken by a friend of mine, Clair Green, no relation, who allowed me to use the photo as a reference for my painting.

Painted on Hahnemuhle 200lb Watercolour paper

I wasn’t sure initially if I should include the detailed foreground but to me it was part of the appeal from the original image so I decided to put it in too and I am now pleased that I did.
