Inspired by the sea
The original abstract oil paintings for sale in the gallery are inspired by the beautiful movement
and light out to sea. The sea is a source of fascination and visual delight for me and I often
see potential paintings from the views taken in during trips to the beach. When looking out into
nature, I am drawn into thoughts about future artworks and how I might paint them.
The original oil paintings shown in the gallery reflect the artist’s human responses to what they have seen in life. I've attempted to
condense the qualities that have moved or affected me and express them succinctly onto the canvas using oils.
They are the result of a process of reflection on what I have seen in nature, embodying my thoughts
and feelings about places now familiar and cherished. Aiming to capture the essence of the seashore, which
is a place that is constantly changing, with new patterns of light and movement emerging every second.
Through the abstract process, I lays down unique textures and rhythms of rich oil brushstrokes over the canvas,
attempting to mirror the patterns seen in the sands, the tide and the sky.
The two sandy beaches on the east and west of the UK at Lindisfarne and Lytham St Annes bring wonderful,
inspiring views of nature. The beaches, different through the seasons, present a wide range of conditions,
some dramatic, some calm and some atmospheric. The colours, light, tones and rhythms of nature by the coast
are truly captivating, making them the perfect subject for my original oil paintings. The wide spaces,
the nature of the sea and the weather conditions have all been inspiring for me.
I've been visiting these stretches of sandy beaches regularly throughout the year, and each
visit is rewarded with beautiful views out over white sands to a wonderful expanse of sea. The mood and
atmosphere on the beach is always changing because you can see for miles all around the coast, and you
can see the weather changing around you. I've attempted to show this through
abstract paintings that remind you of the views I've experienced.
Abstract oil paintings process
They are painted repeatedly, with layer upon layer interacting over time to form the finished
abstract image. Sometimes you see parts of the work underneath which reveal the texture and patterns used within
the final picture. Often large areas are overpainted. I embrace the qualities of accident as well as the
deliberate during sessions which see me working on the whole canvas at once, to create a unified whole
and a new image.
Often the traces of paint from the action of painting brush strokes and textures add to the expression of
the artwork. I've been using alla prima methods (wet into wet) for all the artworks in the gallery, which
puts you on your toes when creating but has the advantage of concentrating your mind on the essential forms and
shapes within the entire picture surface.
