Nicholas Harding

River Girl Lilo  - Oil on Canvas

56 x 56cm

This gorgeous painting by Nicholas Harding was purchased at the Melbourne Art Fair.   The oil is applied to the canvas thickly and strongly with a palette knife and gives such depth to the painting.  I particularly love the the way the light goes through the water, and her arm is somewhat distorted.   Nicholas Harding has been painting beach and water scenes for some time now, and  this one is a beautiful example of his work.

Purchased Sohpie Gannon Gallery August 2010
