Inspired by the seashore

Light out to sea, Lytham St Annes original watercolour painting by fine artist Timothy Gent
Light out to sea, Lytham St Annes | Watercolour on paper

I’ve been working on a number of watercolour paintings through May that are inspired by the seashore at Lytham St Annes in Lancashire. They explore the light and movement over the sea through textures and mark-making in watercolour on paper.

Light out to sea, Lytham St Annes is my latest seascape artwork, capturing the sunlight as it catches the undulating waves over the shallow shelf of the sandy shore. It is lovely to see the light reflecting off the sea and the pools of water left by the tide. The shimmering light is beautiful and inspiring, with all kinds of qualities of light playing over the seashore at Lytham St Annes.

Together with the introduction of this new watercolour painting, you will be able to see a new oil painting on canvas (40 cm x 50 cm) I am releasing soon (it is a work-in-progress at the moment). I've given oil paintings a bit of a break recently but it is nice to return to working with this especially rich medium. More details to follow, please stay tuned!
