This month, I’ve been visiting the beach regularly, with the brighter weather bringing out some of the beautiful colour and light in the coastal landscape.
Calm seas and Over the tide are recent paintings I’ve been working on this spring. They are inspired by sunlit views from walks over the sands at Ross beach, Lindisfarne on the Northumberland coast.
Each visit to the beach invites exciting possibilities about how to put into paint the beauty of natural form found on the beach and in the sea.
Over the next few weeks, I will be busy with an exciting commission for a large oil painting of the coast and I will display a picture of the finished original painting in due course.
