Oil and Wax, 11 x 14 inches
This oil and wax painting is part of a series that conveys an impression of the spaces where water finds its way between steep, dominant and ominous rock formations. Though these are relatively small works, there is an intricate blending of colour and a heavy reliance on texture and detail throughout to effectively portray the majesty of the scene.

“I studied the art of the ancients and that of the moderns using no systematized approach and without preconceived ideas. I no more wanted to imitate the former than I sought to copy the latter… I wanted to draw from the entire body of tradition a rational, independent sense of my own individuality. To know in order to create—this was my purpose.” – Gustave Courbet (1819-1877)
