ice bar

Private Client – Daventry

Client Brief

To create a feeling of wilderness and mountain areas in the Canadian Rockies, ice and cold on canvas…

Ice Bar 


I enjoyed creating Ice Bar with a feeling of the cold and rugged terrain where you cannot see a mountain or can you and maybe other scenes.  This is what the client wanted to see and a feel of bleakness yet others can see other things.

Very textured and matt.  A step away from my normal vibrancy but still has a life of its own.

To go into the clients study at their home.

In the bleak midwinter – Frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron, Water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, Snow on snow, Snow on snow, In the bleak midwinter, Long ago.
