Oil painting Calm seas March 2017 | News

Original art oil painting Calm seas, Ross sands, Lindisfarne by fine artist Timothy Gent

As Spring makes its welcome return, I’ve been continuing my series of oil paintings, the latest works being Over the shore and Calm seas shown below.

Calm seas is inspired by the the natural beauty of the seashore, its wide open spaces and fantastic skies in the Spring sunshine over Ross beach near Lindisfarne in Northumberland.

I've used expressive brushstrokes and rich textures to reflect the sense of nature moving - the vast movement of the sea and the clouds in the sky.

Wonderful shades of blue (Ultramarine, Prussian and Cerulean) together with cadmium reds and touches of cadmium yellow and indian yellow reflect the serenity and the calmness of this coastal view.

You can find Calm seas oil painting displaying in the gallery.
