Some new paintings























I've had fun making these small paintings on primed mdf - unfortunately the colour and contrast are wildly inaccurate and probably an improvement! The largest is 11 x 8.5 inches and the smallest 7.5 x 6 inches.
Starting from the bottom is 'Godrevy Breakers' - Godrevy is the name of the point and lighthouse pictured - the one above is 'Snow Peak', painting no 3 is untitled, next is 'Sunlit Sky', then 'Tropical Blue', another untitled and at the top 'St Ives Bay Rough Sea'.
Some of the underpainted texture was created by slathering paint onto a square of anaglypta wall paper - a technique gleaned from Carol Parsons watercolour workshop held at Newlyn Gallery in March - and then pressing onto the board. I also used it on the surface of 'Snow Peak' and the untitled painting 2nd from the top, as well as 'printing' the pattern on the cut out paper shape which was then glued to the artwork.

  2. You capture the energy of the ocean so beautifully. I particularly love the very first picture - I can almost hear the waves crashing and smell the sea spray. Lovely.

  5. What wonderful paintings! I especially like "Godrevy Breakers". I love the colours and the way you have captured the never ending movement of the sea. The paint looks so amazingly fluid!
