New painting

Actually, it's not a new painting, but an earlier abstract that just didn't 'come off'.  More attention was needed I felt and as a result the subject changed direction slightly and the artwork turned into 'Landscape Evolution 2010' - the date has been included as Landscape Evolution is a title I have used before, albeit for a much smaller painting.

Currently exhibited in the St Ives Society of Artists  Members Festival show.  Click to enlarge.


  1. So wonderful, sigh :o)
    You have captured the movement of the water and the sparkle of sunlight perfectly

    Lotsa love x

  2. Lesley, it makes me feel like I'm swimming,
    love it!

  3. Wonderful, I can feel the wind in my hair and taste the sea-spray on my lips.

  4. Gorgeous - love the sun speckled waves and the light. One of those pictures to loose yourself in... especially when it's raining outside and cold. :-) xo

  5. Oh it is so very beautiful. I do envy your talent x

  6. You simplify it all down so very, very beautifully.... what a skill!

  7. Thanks everyone - a lot of it was pure 'fluke' or maybe serendipity? Lesley x

  10. Thanks Tricia, I'll certainly try to give some tips in a future post (might be easier said than done, though)!

  11. Beautiful, love the blue shades and the right hand corner where the water really seems to sparkle. You capture the sea so well.

  12. Lesley, that's beautiful. I'm at the Society later this week for a writing talk so I'm going to take time to have a look. Hope all is well, Karen.
