After rain.

Saturday Light   Oils on canvas board  10 x 12 inches  

Sunshine.  A brief interlude on a wet morning.  

Studio Musings...

I am preparing work for submitting to a show in September.
A series of four seascapes are drying and will be framed in traditional gold.

 To dull the 'gleam' they have been hand finished to give a softer, distressed look.

Soggy surface.

Wet Marsh   Oils on board  17 x 24 cm

Ebb tide and a wet marsh along the Lincolnshire coast.

Studio Musings...

I have used a previous marsh painting for this.
  Allowing parts to still be visible, the focus is on the marsh grasses.

Green was loosely brushed and sculpted to resemble the swirls of grasses. 
 The subtle colours of mud and shore add shape and form to the shore.

A frothy edge of the sea was added with swift strokes of a creamy white.
The Pale coloured sandbanks pick up the sunlight in the distance.

All sizes.

Shore Shapes   Oils on canvas board  5 x 7 inches   

A tapestry of shapes along the shore.

Studio Musings...

In this study the shapes resemble sand, creeks and water.
An old canvas was used allowing parts of the previous work to show through.

View of the day.

Bay Watching   Oils on canvas board  5 x 7 inches

Light and shade.  A Yorkshire Bay.

Studio Musings...

Hurried brush marks, little time for questioning.
This often makes a relaxed study.  Bold strokes with light and shade.

Around Cromer   Oils on canvas board  5 x 7 inches

Soft light over the Norfolk coast.

Studio Musings...

Soft and muted for a sense of place.
A few brush strokes making marks.

My way of interpreting the landscape. 
I wanted to let nature say it all.

Mixed terrain.

Limestone Ridge   Oils on canvas board  5 x 7 inches

Chunks of limestone on the surface of the Lincolnshire Ridge.

Studio Musings...

I am interested in the land and how it changes over the seasons.
The absence of crops in this field reveals chunks of limestone
picking up the sunlight.  I like the variety of colours and textures.

Abstracting what is there and making a picture about texture
I used brush and knife to sculpt the paint.  Thicker parts pick up light.

Juicy oils and imagination.

Showing off.

Sundown   Oils on canvas board  5 x 7 inches

Evening show begins...a colourful end to the day.

Studio Musings...

I love grey.  Muted colours are my kind of thing.
My work is often about the soft, flat light of the Lincolnshire landscape.

However...nature has a wild variety of colours in her paintbox.
Lifting the lid I felt like dazzling myself with the evening 
performance as the sun drops beyond the horizon.
