About the project

Breaking Light, Fading Storm


Artist – Nial W. Adams – 2016

Medium – Oil on Canvas

Size – 36″ x 28″ Landscape

Description –

Breaking Light, Fading Storm. For me the pleasure in oil painting comes when the light is pulled from the dark. Big contrast means big highlights and the illusion that only oil painting can produce.

A big dark cloud may obscure the light but eventually the sun always breaks through. A wild and dramatic landscape (or cloudscape, if you prefer), depicting the struggle between dark heavy clouds and beaming rays of light. A metaphor for life, perhaps.

This is a big painting presented on stretched canvas, with black edges, making it suitable for hanging with or without a frame. Suitable for a big room, with good distance from the painting to create the full effect.

This artwork was previously on loan and display at Felbrigg Lodge Hotel in North Norfolk. The original painting is now sold, however Limited Edition Prints are available (archive quality paper or on stretched canvas). Please contact Big Norfolk Skies for more details.
