‘And the sun comes’ 5 inches x 7 inches – oil on canvas board

I’ve been painting the skies recently, aswell as the sea, and it’s been great fun playing with colours and brushstrokes. I like making these little studies, as they encourage experimentation.

‘Cloud study’ – 7 inches by 5 inches – oil on canvas board. These small works also make plein air painting more user friendly.

‘Night watch’ 7 inches x 5 inches – oil on canvas board. Titled so because when sailing through the night and the sun goes down, the colours of the sea and the sky can do some quite surprising things. The whole lot is moving and changing all the time.

Bella vista - 50cm x 50cm

 

‘Bella Vista’ – oil on canvas – 50cm x 50cm

I had fun with this painting. The view is inspired from one on St Martins, Isles of Scilly, where the yellow gorse contrasted so vibrantly with the sea on a sunny day in May.

Bird on a wire - 20cm x 20cm

‘Bird on a wire’ – oil on canvas – 20cm x 20cm

Again, there is the contrast of colour, the green bird versus the blue of the sky. Almost the background can be taken out of context here, because it is just colour. The wire takes on more significance than it normally would, scratched deep into the paint.

Broken wing - 20cm x 20cm

‘Broken wing’ – oil on canvas – 20cm x 20cm

I found a butterfly wing on the ground and just wanted to capture the colour and delicacy of it that I brought it back into the studio. A gust of wind caught it – aptly – and it broke in two, now even more reason to paint it I thought. Against the green of my table it makes for quite a contrast, and depicts more-so than before the delicacy and transience of life.
