Description of Shimmering San Sia section of the Yangtze river

The fluid strokes of acrylic paint on this canvas accentuate the steepness of the greenery clad mountains as they plunge down to the shimmering surface of the San Sia section of the Yangtze river in China. The green cast of the river water is almost entirely hidden by the brilliant blue reflections of light and sky in shades of sapphire, turquoise and sky blue. The shadowed mountains in the foreground are predominantly deep green and midnight blue, whereas the mountains catching the sun are alive with channels of bright green, interspersed with deeper greens and blues, punctuated by flashes of a light taupe where the sun catches the bare rock.

The painting is a gallery wrapped 1½” deep edge canvas, with the sides re-gessoed a clean white. It is wired and ready to hang. No frame is necessary unless desired.
