Currently in progress in the studio is this seascape which I am painting in oil using palette knives on canvas. I always enjoy using Palette knives as they free me from my usually tight painting style.
Also currently in the studio is this small land/skyscape painting.
Oil on primed MDF board (16 x 16 inches)
Large scale seascape Commission
Here are some photos of one of my recent large scale seascapes which I have been painting as a commission.
You can see the painting in the early stages in the studio and on the right the now finished painting ready for its frame and new home!
Large scale seascape Commission II
UPDATE: Following on from the Seascape above I have since produced a second painting.
During the summer I always like to spend some time in Perranporth, North Cornwall. During my visit in 2013 I spent much time walking along the beach at low tide into the town for something to eat at my favourite local fish and chip shop "Pickwicks".
I love the ripples in the sand left at low tide and took some photographs and made some sketches. When I was back in the studio I set to work on the oil painting above.
I like to break the rules of composition and the bottom heavy layout of this canvas is something I thought might work for this subject.
The painting is nearing completion in the studio and I will post more photos soon.
