Whenever I’m walking along a riverbank and I come across a backwater, I love to stop and watch the water as it swirls around and the ‘still’ parts where often silence is the norm. These are great places not only to visit, but also to paint.
The same applies to rock pools. These often silent ‘ponds in miniature’ are wonderful to gaze at. Their contents can be quite fascinating as can be their reflections.
There is a lot to offer the abstract artist in today’s featured artworks.
