Artist's description:

Crazy time, and none of it for the beach holiday this year. Worked on my Migration collection for 3 months head down. Whole summer gone in a blink of an eye. Sounds familiar? Yes, you and I possibly have that in common.

Now, my south-england born & raised partner has an old minimal paining in his bedroom. Beach, sea line, two palm trees and a hammock between them. Few strokes, simple palette. But what a treat waking up to that image in grey rainy London; eye resting, thoughts spinning, memory lane wide open into that little corner on the planet. It does the trick easily taking your mind onto the shores of the indian ocean (or Hawaii, or Caribbean, whatever your strongest memory of the tropical paradise you've been to). Clever art. I liked the idea for ages, but not so much the colours. My sailor boy kept nagging for ages oh why can't I create something for his dad for xmas, he'd love a beautiful large boaty piece on his wall in Devon (despite having three originals by local art celebs already). Luckily this Xmas magic happened and the puzzles lined up in my head. That perfect single stroke is finally found and it is mine. With no compromise on my signature watercolour technique in whatsoever. Finally the smoothest fine grain italian canvas sitting there lonely ifor awhile was painted. I am truly pleased with that deep deepest deepedy-do turquoise blue achieved with watercolour and oil layers. Out for grabs now and hope you too will fall involve with it in a heart beat.


here is some on processes:

Applying the same watercolour technic developed during my atmospheric series I looked to remove unnessesary details and follow more eloquent minimalistic approach to small details.

The moored boats are only painted with few strokes complementing that aerial view of the bay.

Depth is achieved through multiple layers of watercolour with a hint of transparent acrylic that is sealed with alkyde medium blend and a dash of oil paint. The modern binder used here is preventing yellowing and fading over time.
