Two new works sort of.........

'Wild Weather Porthmeor' oil on primed mdf, white wood frame.  Image size 19 x 15 cm, framed size 32 x 28 cm. 

'Porthmeor - light late in the day' oil on primed board framed, image size 43 x 30 cm, framed size 60 x 47 cm.

'Wild Weather' has been painted over an earlier painting that didn't work and 'Porthmeor - light' is a new painting in an old (but very nice and too good to waste) frame.  Both paintings are destined for the Clare White Gallery in Barnsley.


  1. Both lovely - I think the top one being my favorite. Stormy skies, rough seas - make for a beautiful subject that really speaks to me.

  2. Thanks Cathie - all was calm and beautiful at Porthmeor this evening. x

  3. Lesley, these are just so beautiful. Fantastic x

  4. Hi Julie and Karen - thank you. Hope that you are both 'in the pink' and will pop around to see you soon. x

  5. I just love the Wild Weather painting - it feels like I could hop in there and get wet!

  6. Beautiful paintings! Love the colours and movement in them. The second one is my fave. :-)

  7. I shall hot foot in down to the Clare White Gallery to take a closer look - its only a couple of miles from me. Please keep the wild weather away from ST Ives when we comedown in a few weeks time. Are you up for a meetup with Carolyn, Noelle and yours truly? I am doing W/c 28/5. What day would be best for you?

  8. Love the Porthmeor one...

  9. Wow, how your work is developing, this work is amazing, it is always a joy to visit your blog but this time you have blown me away...

  10. Hello Girls, thanks for visiting and making such lovely comments, it's so nice to hear from you all. x

  11. That wild weather one is wonderful! I can feel the spray on my face and salt on my tongue.

    I love a bit of wild sea!

  12. They are both amazing Lesley but the first one is so full of texture. You can almost feel the weather.

  13. Thanks for commenting Gilly & Cathy - hope that you are both well. x

  14. Love the palette knife work of the top one, verging on the abstract.

  15. Thanks Jill - I love the unpredictability of using a painting knife. x

  16. Love the movement and atmosphere beautiful beautiful work missus xx

  17. Thank you Mimi - cold conditions again here for the last few days, with gale force winds, brrr....
