Modern acrylic on canvas by John Sprakes RBA, ROI. Entitled “Dark Trees” this is a very typical John Sprakes painting…A landscape painted from the top of a hill with the valley before the artist stretching away into the distance. An interesting use of colour with purple, blues and mauves giving the landscape a wintery feel. The painting is mounted, framed and glazed. The frame measures 56 x 46 cm, with the picture itself measuring 41 x 31 cm.
