Limestone pillars by Dave Froude


Title: Limestone pillars
Medium: Oil on 9 x 12 Canvas panel

Lat weekend My wife and I went to Mount Nemo, which is part of the Niagara escapement, while walking through the various paths we came across this scene a cavern among 2 huge limestone pillars , the rocks were covered with so much moss and the sun light was just hitting a tiny part of the bottom of the cavern, took quite a few photos as it was quite an awesome site. Hopefully I managed to convey this through this painting, but it is my first attempt at subject matter like this. Midway through this I have decided this needs to be a lot larger so look for a much larger piece at a later date.

Enjoy

Dave
