Impressionist Landscape by Magi Oliver Bosch
A peaceful depiction of a cove, with the still blue water hugging the cliffs and the hazy clouds inviting a dreamlike atmosphere. It's impossible not to be filled with tranquillity when looking at the vibrant colours and soft brushwork of this radiant piece, in Magi Oliver Bosch's signature style.
