Floods at Athelney

Floods at Athelney

Acrylic on board.  Size 60 x 40cm.  Sold.

Althelney is on the Somerset Wetlands, and is very low lying.  It floods often in the winter time.  When it does, and the sun sets, there are these marvellous colours both in the sky and in the reflections in the water.  Again, these shapes making pattern after pattern, and then it becomes so vibrant.  And yet the winter trees seem to be so fragile.  I tried to make a contrast between the feathery quality of the trees and the solid colours in the sky and water.

About Tazia Fawley

I started painting seriously about 10 years ago. My main interests are sea-scapes and land-scapes. I live in Somerset in the UK and have had a number of local exhibitions. I enjoy working in acrylic paint and find that it is a versatile medium and sympathetic to my way of working. I am a self-taught painter and am fascinated by colour, pattern and design.

    I saw the article about your work on the BBC and was keen to see the rest of your work! I think this is my favourite. The colours are beautiful and I love the reflections in the floodwater.
