Sea Originals

Off to the framers today with 'Bright Day, Wild Sea' SOLD below, which is painted on primed board in oil, worked with roller, knife and brush.  The strong sky colour has come from the excess paint mixed to 'rejuvenate' a tired abstract!  Painting measures 46 x 30.5 cm.


'Brisk Breeze at the Beach' is smaller, 19 x 15 cm (though looks the same size here).  It's another reworked piece - surprise, surprise, I'm a big fan of reuse - features heavy impasto and is rendered on primed and under-painted MDF.  SOLD

  1. Wonderful works, Lesley.
    I'm a fan of reworks too. I just slapped on a big layer of Kils over a huge canvas (with a proper painter's house brush) and now can start fresh

  2. Love these Lesley, love even more wonderful enlarged !!

  3. I like that second one very much indeed! Lovely beach, and I can almost smell the sea from here!

    1. Thanks Gilly, we've had sunshine and showers here today and Porthmeor Beach has been looking stunning - fast moving clouds, changing light conditions, plenty of blue sky and good surf. Have a good weekend. Lesley x

  4. Oh they are beautiful! I particularly like the first one!

  5. I thought the first one was a photograph, so realistic. Your sea paintings are always gorgeous.
    Hope you are having a lovely sunny weekend.

    1. Thanks Milly - muted sunshine today, but the two previous days were beautiful. Have a lovely weekend. Lesley x

  6. Your work is so very lovely Lesley and I can vouch that it is even lovlier in real life. I can't believe your genorosity and I will hang my treasured piece with pride. Thank you so very much - and i forgive you for disregarding the rules!!! Lots of love. xxxx

    1. Thank you Diane - it was a pleasure and great to see you again. The weather was pretty good too, wasn't it. Have a good week. x
