May paintings

I have been a busy bee - here are four more small paintings - besides which, there are three others (not square) with final touches needed and four more in the early stages of creation!  Plus, work has commenced on two larger pieces and I'm thinking of more abstracts too, though would also like to tackle a reasonably sized watercolour - ooh, decisions, decisions........

'Advancing Seas' oil on primed board, approx 12.5 x 12.5 cm.  SOLD

'Fine Weather Breakers' oil on board, 12.5 x 12.5 cm.   SOLD 

'Serene Eve Sea' oil on board, 12.5 x 12.5 cm. SOLD

'Beach from Headland' SOLD - this one is loosely based on the view from St Ives Head (The Island) across Porthmeor Beach to Clodgy Point, oil on board, 12.5 x 12.5 cm.

  1. Oooh Lesley they are all so, so beautiful. My favorite though is Beach from Headland - I've always loved ocean scenes with green grass in them. This one is particularly lovely and makes me happy.

  2. Thanks Cathie, that's nice to know - hope that you are enjoying some time in the sun this weekend. x

  3. Hi!
    Serene Eve Seas is my favorite but they are all so moody and great.
    Like your place here.

  4. "Advancing Seas" is the winner for me.... I can almost feel the waves moving and sucking back out over the sand.

  5. Julie and Cathy - how are you both? Thanks for taking a look and commenting. It's bright and sunny here at the moment - but very, very windy. Have a good week. Lesley x

  6. They are all lovely but my favourite is "serene eve sea", really beautiful.

  7. The last photo is my favourite although they are all wonderful. Your work always is as I know at first hand.

  8. Oh, thank you Cathy! It's interesting to read about individual preferences. x
