Yes, it's very windy and wet outside today, though quite bright too - and mild. Inside there's colour and light, the colours of summer and the sea.
Look on my beautiful heart, a gift from the so very talented Carolyn, and walk on the beach below an 'Alfred Wallis' cottage, among the shells and swirls of water and glitter, the sparkle of sun on sand and surf - and then visit Carolyn at Love Stitching Red she will be delighted to see you.
The painting below (haven't decided on a title yet) features Browthin a rock just off Clodgy Point to the West of St Ives and looking at it takes me back to that May evening, when a sea mist rolled in and out making everything grey for a while before receding to reveal soft, lovely, sunset hues. I used acrylic and oil on primed board, rendered with brush and knife.
No title for this one either, which features my favourite subject, Porthmeor Beach, which never ceases to fascinate - it's impossible to capture the magic! Again, rendered in acrylic and oil on primed board, using impasto and glazing techniques with layering of opaque and transparent colours. SOLD
