Last Light





There is always something to inspire a painting when I have a wander down by the sea. Even places I visited time and time again have something different or a certain light to capture.
This little village by the sea is always busy especially in the summer months, if I hang about enough something always catches my eye, it could be a fisherman mending his nets, gulls out on the rocks or the colourful fishing boats like this one.
I experimented with oil over acrylic, trying to get some texture in the harbour wall and sand, it's a fun process and I'm already trying out some new ideas. Hope you like it!

I love the painting - especially the beautiful colors of the boat.

I like it very much indeed! The section that caught my eye at first was the patch of blue in the sky but this is a painting to keep coming back to.

You have such an interesting variety of textures within the same painting--much to intrigue.

I love the unusual perspective in this. Feels definitely like a captured moment. Beautiful work.
