This month, I’ve been working on a number of watercolour paintings as well as Alongshore my latest oil painting on linen. It is inspired by open views along the shore at Ross sands beach at Lindisfarne. Even though it is a relatively small canvas, I think it shows some of the dramatic scale, light and movement found there.
I’ve used a painting knife to introduce more textural variety into the painting. With some lovely abstract marks over the linen. It feels quite a minimalist and modern painting, with a simple composition brimming with natural movement. You can view Alongshore along with my other abstract oil paintings in the gallery.
During November I will be working on a new 50 cm square oil painting on canvas, with some all new Williamsburg artist oils, which I am eager to try.
I've also been working on a new printed fine art calendar available for 2018, containing six oil paintings and six watercolour paintings reproductions in a wiro bound A4 vertical format.
As the festive season is nearly upon us, I have curated some fine art gift ideas in the gallery. So if you'd consider giving or having a fine art present this year you can see some ideas there, in addition to my regular collection of fine art in the gallery.
