White Water, Cornwall. Oil on Board, 10"x10".

I have done this before but in Gouache, I was interested to do the same image in oil to see the difference. I like the wet feel of the oil and the bumps and lumps that give something to the painting.

Kirkstone Pass 1, Snow and Low Cloud. Oil on Board, 8"x8".

Driving from the sunshine of Ambleside, over the snowy Pass into sunshine in Patterdale. At the top of the Pass we were presented with a near monotone landscape. The near abstract subject was an exercise in marks, smudges and blending. I think I got the feel of the place.

Sandsend Breakwaters in the Sunshine, Oil on Board, 16"x8".
Showing at: Trattles & Geall Fine Arts, Whitby.

Painted these breakwaters a few times now (and no doubt will again) as there is a lot going on in them. Waves building and breaking, reflections, colours, light, movement.

I have started to focus on coastal scenes more recently, drawn to where moving water meets seemingly immovable objects. Trying to get that sense of energy, changing colours, depth, reflections and weather is the challenge.
