‘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.

Sky, sea, colour

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on June 11, 2016 by Jill

At the start of this year I wanted to take a fresh look at things, to liberate the colour within my work.

These are some of the first paintings that have come from that impetus. I am always inspired by the colours around me, even on a rainy day they can be far more dynamic to the naked eye, than on any photograph that I try to take.

I wanted to make these colours dance on the canvas, the three paintings below are from my winter walks along the Cornish coast.

It is not about replicating the beauty of nature, but about trying to respond to it.
