What is your favourite thing about winter? Do you enjoy the snow and the crisp cold air? In this work on paper, Scottish-born Canadian artist Graham Norwell captures the beauty of a winter day in the Ottawa Valley. Overlooking a bright blue body of water, the rocky scene is painted with simplified forms and conveys a strong sense of atmosphere, a hallmark of the artist’s style. Norwell, who studied under Arthur Lismer at the Ontario College of Art before moving to Ottawa in the early 1920s, often painted en plein air and is widely known for his wintery landscape scenes.
