TITLE:  A blustery Spring day, Swanage

SIZE:  240 x 280 mm MOUNTED:  290 x 330 mm off white.

PRICE:  £125.00 Plus P & P

ARTIST'S OBSERVATIONS:  This is something of a departure for me, as I rarely paint figures.  I was sitting facing a window, overlooking the scene and eating fish and chips in Swanage.  The couple leaning on the railings overlooking the sea really fascinated me and the sea beyond was making interesting shapes - as it does.  The gulls weren't there, but could have been interested in the couple had they been eating chips!  I really enjoyed painting this picture as it was a little different from the norm.

TITLE:  Flamingos

SIZE:  200 x 200 mm

PRICE:  NOT FOR SALE

ARTIST'S OBSERVATION:  This painting went to a family member in return for a particularly nice T-shirt.  A little odd, I know, but that's the way art goes sometimes!  It is not often that I paint birds, and particularly not large garish and some might say ungainly birds.  It was following a visit to The Dominican Republic with family early in 2020 - just before Covid-19 struck.  Happily, we had all got our dose of sunshine before being brought back to the UK early.  I returned with a wealth of photographs, mainly of the magnificent reptiles and birds that were everywhere.  Peach is NOT my favourite colour, and my safety valve with this work was being able to return to the water and reflections when I was worried about how I would proceed further with the birds.  Fortunately, it was not a complete failure and the painting is now in a good home and I have a lovely T-shirt - how frivolous is that?

CARDS:  Handmade cards are available for sale.
