Its my friend Glyn's wedding celebration soon and so instead of buying him a bottle of bubbly or something equally dull I thought I'd paint a present. Above is the result, its Carsington Water (local reservoir) at twilight and it was inspired by a dusk walk and the resulting photos. The photos were underexposed but were enough to inspire the painting. I'm pleased with the result. Its particularly relevant as Glyn and his wife like messing around in water, usually in a canoe, although sometimes out of one, he's a bit of a physics grad man-from-atlantis kinda guy:-) Hope he likes it, especially after that description!
