Harald Foss, Pastoral Scene In Virkland, Denmark

Oil on canvas

A peaceful landscape painting depicting a view in Virkland across to the Thorsø hills by Danish artist Harald Foss (1843-1922).

Foss loved this area and he’s captured the effects of light so beautifully as it illuminates the lake and three grazing sheep. Towards the foreground, he’s also added small flecks of white to give the grass a gentle shimmering effect.
