Rolf Harris - Snow On Marshy Ground - Original canvas on board

Many years ago, when TVAM was operating, I arranged for them to hang a huge sheet of photographic paper in their studio so that I could do a demonstration painting of a snowscene for the TV cameras. I'd done all sorts of preliminary sketches of snow scenes, tree and building covered in snow, and went ahead and painted a 9 foot by 12 foot scene. It was thrilling to do, using all the different pots of paint and the 4 inch house painting brushes. I took a photo of the end result and have kept it ever since. The original painting was scrapped. Well, what can you do with something that huge in fairly flimsy paper? Just recently I unearthed my old photo and was inspired to paint it again, but this time in oil, and at a more sensible size.
