The River Thames Near Kemble II

The River Thames Near Kemble II

Size: 0.92m x 0.61m  Medium: Oils on canvas  

May-Jul 2009  Exhibited: 31 

This is where the constricted little River Thames flows beneath the A429 Kemble to Cirencester Road. Larger Cornbrash Limestone rocks that have been deposited here in turn collect Ranunculus which have been washed along in the water flow and begin to take root then flower. Never more than a few cms/inches deep here, the water is perfectly clear over a gravelly bed in the foreground.
