This is a small and hazy gem of a landscape oil painting.
Hayden has captured the misty winter sunlight, the play of shadow across the water and the dry bleached reeds in the foreground.
Priding is a hamlet not far from Stroud and the horeshoe bend of the river Severn, very close to the artist's home. In the distance, through the cool haze, are the South Cotswolds hills.
In one of his typical records of British landscape, on a miniature scale, Hayden has reflected the beauty of this wonderfully-lit scene, transforming a relatively open and barren stretch of estuary into a rich and atmospheric record of winter countryside.
For anyone wanting to own a Hayden Price original - but needing to manage a budget - this is the perfect solution.
ABOUT HAYDEN PRICE
Hayden has lived in Gloucestershire for most of his life and it's the region he paints most.
The seasons, with their changing light and colours, are his inspiration and his oil work is a detailed reproduction of the atmosphere, light and depth, sometimes to photo-realistic levels.
He has an astonishing ability to render natural textures, field crops and other landscape features. Works like this are painted over many months and require brushes of sometimes a single strand.
Sketching, painting and recording scenes and vistas, Hayden also travels the country and beyond to capture architecture, coast and landscape.
He has twice been accepted into the Bath Society of Artists exhibition, in the second year winning the public's favourite painting. Self-taught, he has been painting since he was 15.
