Time to start finishing the many paintings I have been working on over the last few months!
This one is one of my very favourite beaches, Sandend.
Did some drawing for my ‘Big Beaches’ series at beautiful Balmedie beach yesterday. Fascinating to watch the huge new wind turbines going up – most powerful in the world apparently!
I’m starting a new series of paintings inspired by the beautiful, sweeping, sandy beaches of Northeast Scotland. Here’s the first one of a moody Cruden Bay beach to start off.
I went to the beach, did some pastel sketches and took some photos, then did this painting back in the studio. It is 60 x 80cm in oil paint.
I’ve been out and about doing lots of small pastel sketches recently to use as source material for bigger paintings back at the studio. Here are a few of beautiful Bennachie, the biggest hill in these parts.
I section off a few boxes on my paper with masking tape and work on around 4 sketches at the same time, focussing on different aspects of colour, light, composition in each. The results give me lots of information to use in my paintings later.
I have had great quality giclée prints made of 3 of my paintings and they are available to purchase now at £40 each including mount, backing board and cellophane wrap.
They are to fit in a standard 30 x 40cm frame which you can get anywhere like Hobbycraft/B&Q etc.
