About this Painting

Head of the River was painted alongside Flooded Lake, River Clouds and Waterway.  Head of the River has taken us on a journey along the river where we can rest and plan our next adventure of crossing the heads out to the deeper ocean.  While the river is gentle the journey beyond the heads can be risky and treacherous.  Resting here at the Head of the River, we can absorb the calm, gentle river, its sandy banks and the life it supports, gaining the courage and strength needed to carry on with our journey.


Painted in an abstract landscape style using layers of acrylic over colourful underpainting and deep shadow.  Head of the River creates a calm and gentle resting point before a deep unknown.  This is achieved with texture, mark making and layering.
