Oil painting Northern Shores September 2016 | News

Oil painting Northern Shores, Northumberland by fine artist Timothy Gent

This contemporary, modern oil painting is inspired by the soft, more autumnal feel to the northern coasts of late and the beautiful sense of light and movement over the ocean.

With this oil painting, I’ve chosen some beautiful new colours, including an intense prussian blue and paynes grey, two lovely blueish blacks. I’ve also used a warm white which tend towards cream to create a sense of light in the painting.

There is a rich pattern of textures in the painting which come from the range of brush sizes I have used, from 2.5 cm to 6 cm.

I’ve used the finest handmade Michael Harding artist paints on a favourite, beautifully made gallery canvas by Pintura.
