There is something about icebergs which captures the imagination. Maybe because most of us don’t see them everyday. Found in remote polar regions, ‘bergs have an indefinable beauty. An artist’s dream with the array of subtle blues and greens used to paint them. And of course, because of the Titanic, they also hold a mysterious danger.
One of the things I wanted to accomplish in this painting is a feeling of distance. It is a bit more of a challenge when one is working on a piece in a small format. The painting also contains a limited palette so slight changes in color can make a large impact.
