Cold Water

This place ticks many boxes for me subject wise. In the Winter the water takes on a cool ethereal air when the frost and cool blues take over, and in the Spring early sun wakes the young plants and flowers, insects buzz around the surface of the water, it's where I painted many times last year and did a small series of lily pond paintings, and although the lillies have been dredged (I hope they return) I'll return this year to just enjoy the space and hopefully make some nice paintings...

I feel as if I know this pond well Nigel!...from all your paintings of it....Now I am beginning to see it in different seasons...Someday I hope to be able to paint it with you!!

You captured the cool winter colors and atmosphere perfectly!
