Just After the Rain, The Abbey, Oil on Canvas, 24" x 30", 2011, SOLD
This is one of the paintings that got sold in the Bath Prize auction last year.
I went with my son Josh who was happy to see my painting go under the hammer, he got inspired and managed to sell one of his sketches for 30p!

I have tried to capture that freshness in the air after the rain with some reflections too. I was mainly inspired to take this piece after studying how Edward Seago takes on the clear cut effect of light and shade on architecture.
