Winter Skies Billingford

About the project

Winter Skies Towards Billingford


Artist – Nial W. Adams – 2016

Medium – Oil on Linen

Size – 36″ x 24″ Landscape

Description –


Even under Winter skies the Norfolk landscape still captures my soul. This oil painting depicts the late afternoon sun penetrating big clouds over the dark earth of ploughed fields looking West towards the village of Billingford.

This is a big and imposing painting. The canvas was prepared personally by my hand in fine Irish Linen, one of the most luxurious materials to paint on. The preparation is to traditional standards, as practiced by the Old Masters, includes sizing with Rabbit-Skin Glue (RSG), then at least three layers of white gesso.

Irish Linen is renowned as the material of choice by many fine artists. The linen flax is grown in wet conditions, which provide one of the most stable materials available; the same material that wrapped the bodies of Egyptian pharaohs. Likewise, linen canvas will, if not damaged, last for centuries.

This original landscape oil painting is presented unframed, with various framing options available. If you are looking for a major feature piece to grace a big wall, then this may be it.
