I painted 'Sunday on the Wye' after a day on the river canoeing with the family. It was a wonderful day meandering down stream near Symonds Yat. We turned the bend to see other boats congregated on the pebbles for a Sunday picnic. We beached our boat to take in the surroundings. The day was a great experience with sparkling light on the water and the sounds of the water over rocks. A few quick sketches and many photographs allowed me to then work at a large scale in the studio. It was painted with large brushes with watercolour. The chosen colours are blue and green. The painterly brush marks hold an energy and excitement of the days paddling.

Artwork by artist Leigh Glover available for sale online and in our gallery at Wychwood Art. The artist comments 'I love painting, the time flies and the mind soars with ideas. I am always on the lookout to experience something new that I could communicate to my canvas. Paintings do not flow every day which is why I have been a gardener for many years. Being out in all weathers and seeing the play of light helps me to experience new insights, feelings and colours.' Colour is key for Leigh, he loves colour to blow the blues away. The play of light on a landscape is also a thrilling experience. Creativity is liberating and it allows him to play and experiment with colour, form, marks and composition. His painting style is eclectic and is arrived at my experience of the subject he is painting. He am inspired by the natural world, mainly from morning walks with Dean the dog or from working in the garden. He is really taken with the idea of our human need to have one foot in human civilisation and one foot in the nature where we live for survival. Leigh Glover was born in England and studied at Oxford Brookes University and Heatherley’s School of Fine Art, London. His work has been exhibited at the Royal Institute of Oil Painters (2008), Royal Society of Portrait Painters (2009), Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize (2010), BP Portrait Award (2011) and the ING Discerning Eye Exhibition (2014). He was a heat participant in the television series Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year (ep.5, 2019).
