acrylic on canvas
The blinding white Perito Mereno Glacier towers above the most incredible turquoise water. Out of the silence, a sudden crack… a huge piece of ice crashes into the river below sending a reverberating roar around the valley that echoes through your body. This painting is based on my experience of witnessing one of the worlds hidden wonders.
I chose to work large scale to give the impression of the vast size of the landscape in which I was standing, the intense colours and intuitive brush work evoke my feelings of awe in nature and seeing one of the worlds last advancing glaciers.
