Tom Cross (1931-2009)

Untitled (Helford River) 1982

Gouache; 52 x 34 cms

Provenance: The Artist's Estate

Painting in either watercolour, gouache or oil paint heavily thinned with turpentine, Cross lays delicate washes of a fairly limited range of colours upon each other, the shimmer of paper through the brushstrokes suggests the sparkling light on the ever-changing surface of the Helford river'. (Robert Meyrick in 'Tom Cross, Paintings of Cornwall and Wales', University of Wales, 1995)
