This little oil painting on board, which measures 12.5 x 12.5 cm, is a typical example of those that I frame and sell at Art Space Gallery and usually display on Picture from St Ives
Although it may seem surprising, this little picture is the result of many hours of work: starting with a sketchy idea and then allowing the subject to expand and evolve, not really knowing at first whether the sky will be grey or blue or the sea choppy or calm - whether there will even be rocks. Perhaps the fact that the outcome is unpredictable is what makes these paintings so interesting and fun to do?
