Flowing Billows, Abingdon

Size: 0.76m x 0.51m  Medium: Oils on Canvas  

May to July 2004  Exhibited: P, 28

Sets of 'billows' (wind-formed waves) are produced by the wind which blows intermittently at right angles to the river flow. In places at the top of the picture, there is some 'interference' of the billow wave-trains.
