Yorkshire Bay Oils on watercolour paper 7 x 11 inches
Light leads the way down to this little bay along the Yorkshire coast.
A loose sketch of shapes and textures.
Viewers may question the absence of people in my paintings. I like people but I generally prefer to create my work alone and savour the peace of my studio. Likewise, I mostly walk alone with just my whippet for company.
I find I can concentrate on the colours and shapes of my surroundings, entering a 'world of my own' as I am inspired by the moment. If I add figures to my work it has a strange way of taking over as the focus of the painting. For me, the focus is the place itself, the sense of place and how I see it.
