Oil Seascape Painting- Reflection in Okavango River

OIL ON CANVAS PAINTING

OIL ON CANVAS PAINTING

This is a Seascape painting of a part of the Okavango river in Botswana, Southern Africa.

I was struck by the beautiful reflections in the water and I could not resist the urge to capture it in paint.

The Okavango region from where the river gets its name is a famous tourist destination in Botswana that is home to a wide variety of animals and wild life.

It is painted with Oil Paint using a palette knife creating a lot of movement. This known as Impasto Technique and is one of several Oil Painting Techniques artists use. Also available in Prints and Greeting cards

An artist needn’t be a clergyman or a churchwarden,but he certainly must have a warm heart for his fellow men.

Vincent van Gogh
