Early Morning Light, Brancaster Staithe

Oil on Board 10 x 14 inches. 

This one I originally painted as a demo last year, so dug it out and tidied it up to get to exhibition standard, refining the drawing and adding more details. I do enjoy painting mud in Norfolk, when the sunlight is reflecting off it - the dark stones and mussel shells can be depicted with a palette knife dragged across the sticky, drying paint underneath - just a lovely aspect of oil paint.

Broad Haven Breaker

 Oil on Board, 9 x 12 inches. 

This one is intended for the RSMA exhibition in October. I had to ensure I got the colours and tone of the wave spume registered correctly, so that the bright, white sparkles on the flat sea appeared very bright to give that sensation that the viewer was looking into the light.
