The River Bandon in Autumn 30x100cm

The painting depicts a stunning scene of River Bandon in County Cork, captured in autumn. The canvas measures 30x100cm and is painted with oil using a palette knife, giving it a textured and impasto appearance. The tall and thin orientation of the canvas effectively draws the viewer’s attention to the narrowness of the river below and the majestic tree tops above. The artist has expertly used shades of rust, gold and ochre to capture the beauty of the trees in autumn, and the distant light adds a sense of depth to the painting. The framed size of the artwork is 38x108cm, and the frame is included in the cost. This piece would be a perfect addition to any space with a tall wall.


We pass by the River Bandon in County Cork when we drive from Sherkin on our way to Cork City. I love this spot in autumn, the river is narrow and passes under beautiful trees, glorious with their shades of rust and gold and ochre, and you can gaze up-stream to a bend in the river and the distant light. Eventually the river gathers pace and volume until it reaches the sea at Youghall.

This canvas is 30x100cm, so it is very tall and thin, and I love the way the orientation really focuses our gaze on the narrowness of the stream below, and the mighty tree tops above. It is also a good shape to fit in a tall space in a home!

Oil on canvas, painted with the palette knife to create a textured impasto.
