“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.”
I make all my own frames for my original artworks, I use mouldings, paints and varnishes of the finest specification. The colours are individually selected to match each piece of art, ensuring the best finish possible.
At present, I can only ship to the UK via the website. I can ship to other destinations, but I’ll need you to get in touch, using the contact me form, for a quote if buying from outside the UK.
All the art I sell is packaged extremely carefully, to keep your painting safe for it’s journey, no matter how far. I have years of experience packaging original artworks for transport to all parts of the world, so you can have faith your unique piece of art will arrive safe and sound. This can take some time, especially with original paintings, however, I aim to ship all art within 2 working days.
