Featured art by Rob Zeer – ‘Gastein Stream’

‘Gastein Stream’
60x60cm acrylic on canvas. Gastein Valley, Austria 2014

‘Gastein Stream’ was painted on location in the Gastein Valley, Austria, the spring of 2014.

‘I picked out the composition the day before on a hike with my wife, Corina. Early the next morning I hiked back to spot, set up my easel on the edge of the streambed and painted. Being early spring morning it was a bit nippy, with fresh spring vegetation sprouting forth and the stream run-off in full force.

‘There is a water spout shown spilling water into the stream. The water spout is a drain from some sort of ancient water-works building shown in the top right hand corner.

‘Though painted in Austrian Alps this scene can also be placed somewhere in the Canadian Rockies.’
