Three paintings on the easel in the studio of an autumnal Hesk bank. They are the start of a new series of 6 small works that will look at Hesk Bank through the seasons of Autumn and Spring. They are painted in oil on board measuring 20x30cm More details wil follow
This is the penultimate stage in the process of making this piece. I have yet to add those brush marks and colours which I hope will create textures on the beach and that shimmering brightening that occurs when the moving sky becomes reflected in the glistening water that surges quickly across the sands at the start of the incoming tide.
As a painter I’ve enjoyed making the series of paintings that led up to this large commission. one because wide open seascapes and huge skies have an instant appeal to my wild side and two because I want people to see that there are many parts of the North West Englands coast line that are inherently beautiful.
