Seascapes on board - square and tiny...

So many pieces included in this post - 3 or so weeks worth - all small and some that are quite dark, which is inappropriate really as we've been having fantastic summer weather here in St Ives! I've been lucky to spend three consecutive days painting, punctuated by plenty of breaks in the garden making the most of glorious sunshine, in the midst of nature, enjoying summer smells, cloudless blue skies and birdsong.  It has been hot, hot, hot! Most of the square paintings are, or soon will be displayed at Art Space Gallery, St Ives   'Black Rocks Porthmeor' is exhibited at St Ives Society of Artists Mariners Gallery. All of the tiny boards have yet to be float mounted ready for display in the browsers at St Ives Society. 'Island Side Reflection'  oil on board, 13.5 x 13.5 cm, NFS 'Tranquil Evening Sea' oil on primed board, 13.5 x 13.5 cm.   SOLD 'Sunset and Sky Reflection' oil on board, 13.5 x 13.5 cm.   SO

Something Different....

This artwork will be exhibited at Penwith Society of Arts Associates Show which opens at the Penwith Gallery, St Ives on Saturday 7 June, 2014. Preview 6.30-8.30 pm, Friday 6 June Had so much fun assembling this artwork  using painted board, fragments of paint tube and foil  laid on brown paper 'Porthcurnow Sienna'  acrylic and oil on board 33 x 28 cm Currently displayed at Art Space Gallery , St Ives.  SOLD The colours and soft light in this painting reminded me of a beautiful evening out West last summer - hence the title.
