On Canvas

 My seascapes have been developed from drawings and paintings produced from observation in Cornwall. I love the dramatic nature of the sea and the continuously changing beach. I like the fact that I have to work quickly and decisively as the light and water levels change rapidly; take too long and you have a confused and laboured study. I am particularly interested in how the land meets the water, the reflections in the pools of water, the marks and textures left by the tide. It is a real challenge to capture the drama of the wind and the sea, and the ever changing light.
