Falling Tide

“A detailed study of a rocky beach on Iona at low tide. Painted in watercolour on Arches paper, the painting was worked up by layer upon layer of subtle colour and tonal changes. It was important to capture the contrast between the hard rock through which the trickle of water ran and then the release onto the soft sand.” – Jan Fisher

Jan Fisher’s painting is a stunning example of photorealism, capturing the intricate details and textures of a rocky shoreline with incredible precision and accuracy. The watercolour medium, with its translucent layers and delicate brushstrokes, allows Fisher to create a lifelike portrayal of the rocky terrain and its natural surroundings.

The painting is a close-up study of the rocky shoreline, with a focus on the small details and features that make up the landscape. In the foreground, Fisher features a jumble of rocks and pebbles, each one rendered with meticulous attention to detail.

To create a sense of depth and perspective, Fisher uses a range of tones and hues to suggest the play of light and shadow across the landscape. The rocks in the foreground are rendered in warm, earthy tones, while those in the distance are cooler and darker in colour. Fisher uses subtle variations in colour and texture to suggest the presence of lichen, moss, and other small plants growing on the rocks, adding to the realism of the scene.

Overall, Jan Fisher’s painting of a detailed study of a rocky shoreline is a breathtaking display of skill and creativity, showcasing her ability to capture the natural world with incredible accuracy and beauty.
