Oil paintings for sale by Timothy Gent

The oil paintings for sale in this collection explore the beautiful light, movement and open space found by the sea. The artist's love of nature and the shore is expressed through a fluid, semi-abstract painting process. Minimal, modern compositions of the seashore communicate the essential visual qualities of what is seen. Bringing to mind the quiet calm of simply looking out to sea and seeing nature unfold.

Views of the seashore and the open skies are transformed into paintings with dynamic brushstrokes and rich marks charged with movement and rhythm against smooth, tonal areas of rest. The elements acting within the whole theatrical stage of the canvas. Semi-abstract colour is used in a creative and emotional way to evoke feeling, mood and atmosphere through the work.

They are based on observations of Lytham St Annes beach in Lancashire and the Northumberland coast at Ross sands near Lindisfarne, England. The paintings are offered in a range of sizes and costs, with all of the fine artwork making a striking addition to your interior space.

Oil paintings by Timothy Gent

This collection of original oil paintings for 2021 are the result of many observations of the visual forms over the seashore. The movement of nature, the changing light and rich variety of marine hues are beautiful and inspiring to see.

The visual beauty seen and the freedom you feel on the beach is what I love to share through my oil paintings. The silence, calm and peacefulness of the open spaces as well as the light and atmosphere draws me towards the seascape as a subject to paint.

You can often feel yourself getting closer and in more direct connection to the natural environment. You notice the patterns, rhythms and movements happening all the time, against slower moving backgrounds. These interactions are very beautiful to watch and I try to show these qualities in my oil paintings.

Modern, semi-abstract and filled with dynamism, each unique painting makes a wonderful reminder of the seashore.
