Salt Marsh Watercolour Painting by Eric Ravilious
'Salt Marsh' was painted on a beach in Essex in 1939. A fishing boat sits on its side, pulled onto the marshland, clear of the sea. A small boat nestles in its shadow and clouds and sea provide the backdrop. This enigmatic watercolour typifies Eric's work - an interesting subject, a lonely scene and muted colours. It juxtaposes the natural and the manmade. Seascapes and boats were a recurring theme in Eric's work and are the subject matter for many of his most iconic paintings. Many of these were war time scenes of destroyers and war ships but this is a much more peaceful work.
This beautiful limited edition art print is available to purchase either framed or unframed.
