COMPOSITIONAL STUDY FOR THE DISPUTE

Description

Oil on canvas
Dimension: 50 x 60 cm

For such a large oil painting it was vital to spend much time in the studio solving the compositional value and colour problems before starting work on the canvas. Small, loose versions of the final composition I find are easier to control and tweak. This is the larger of these compositional studies, and even then I decided to eliminate the background reeds.
