Northern horizons oil painting | September 2020

After a number of visits to the sea over the last few months, I’ve been working on two square oil paintings of 20cm. Both of them are semi-abstract paintings, created over a number of painting sessions involving working and re-working the canvas.

Northern horizons celebrates the beautiful light and movement over the shore, using expressive colour and brushstrokes in rich oil paint. Capturing the beautiful open space and atmospheric tones found over the sea at Ross sands, Lindisfarne.

I've used a broad range of colours, incorporating orange and yellows, brown neutrals and cool purple blue mixes from Williamsburg and Michael Harding. Painted in a fluid, expressive way to evoke light and movement together.
