Original Seascapes in oil

Looks like more rain for all from tomorrow, though we have been fortunate to escape the worst in this part of Cornwall over the past few days, with some decent periods of sun - Monday being a particularly fine day.  In the meantime, while the wait for some settled Summer weather continues, here are some more paintings to view......

'North Coast Cornwall' SOLD below, measures 27.6 x 19.7 x 1.6 inches in a solid white wood frame.  Paint has been applied with knife and brush, with heavy impasto in some parts.  Currently exhibited at St Ives Society of Artists Norway Gallery.

'Porthmeor, Seaweed & Surf' oil on canvas.  SOLD

'Wild Coast' SOLD is rendered in oil on board and is now framed ready for the forthcoming show 'Wish You Were Here' which opens at St Ives Society of Artists Norway Gallery on 5 July, 2012.

  4. Thanks Valerie - would be great to see you again and we've had sun today!! x

  5. I love your seascapes - and good luck with the show. I still have a card you sent me with one of your seascapes on it, and I keep it by my computer so that when I feel really stressed I can just look at this lovely sea!

    1. Gilly, thanks so much - I'm delighted that the picture on the card has such a calming effect! Lesley x
