Bob’s nostalgic artworks are popular with our collectors around the world, thanks to their timeless charm. Using a muted colour palette that draws attention to the unfolding narrative, the Yorkshire-based painter adds layers of glaze in a style influenced by the Old Masters of the Renaissance.
For this piece, Bob used a technique called scumbling, which involved layering a light opaque paint over a darker background to create a soft, romantic feel.
Bob says: “Multiple layers of subtle tones build up an optical vibration that creates the effect of hazy light filtering through the tree, highlighting the water and foreground walls. This frames the two magpies, which are in sharp relief to the couple strolling into the mist.”
