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.

Big and small original paintings....

Had so much fun painting the first two artworks (shown below)
which were prompted by the fear that continual painting in oil on small boards was making my work too tight.

Also, the last two very large commissions in oil on canvas completed last year were a struggle and soooo time consuming, which I have attributed to the lack of speedy, loose gestural under painting in acrylic, which were a feature of earlier large compositions.


'Sea Mist Offshore, Porthmeor'
acrylic on deep edge canvas, 30 x 80 cm.


Beach, Action and Shadow'
 acrylic/acrylic gels on chunky deep edge canvas, 50 x 50 cm.
