Unframed fine art print
“This piece is the second painted outside, although I did do some finishing work back in the studio. There is a favourite local pub, called the Jolly Sailor, and when we walk to have a drink, we pass this truly wonderful view down the River Hamble, across the Solent to the Isle of Wight. It’s always been a favourite view, there’s even a little recess from the road with it’s own bench, so it seemed the most logical place to do a painting.
I’ve tried to use the texture of the ground a bit more subtly on this piece, laying down layers of paint with different colours to try and get the desired effect, namely, a soft mystical feel of things not quite there, or that could vanish in mist and light.”
