Evening Light, Beer Beach

Oil on Board, 6 x 8 inches  SOLD

This little painting was painted en plein air last month towards the end of the day, from a steep walkway looking down on the shingle beach, as the late evening sun dipped behind the instantly recognisable chalk cliffs.  I worked at a frantic pace, without any preliminary drawing, straight in with the paint to get down the shape of the cliff and the sweep of the beach and boats.  I largely finished it on site, apart from the boats and other bits and bobs, which I completed back in the studio.
