Calm and misty view/North Sea
Gentle breaking waves with child and dog
oil on canvas, 20 x 140cm
painted on location - Wed 28 March 2012
A format that alot of you have seen me work on before, and I must say it works very well with capturing the since of vastness and space when one stands before the Sea or any large body of water. A child playing with her pet dog, three sailboats, the one closest actually showing the sailors on board and a yellow bouy, a landmark which brings this scene to a specific location. The atmospheric conditions were such that the scene at times took on an abstract quality, without the horizon line visible, the sky and water almost idintical in hues, seemed as if the sailboats were just floating in mid air, very strange indeed.
