This is large mixed media painting continuing my Summer seascapes theme...the sun had just disappeared over the horizon and the last glimmers of light just caught the waves and shore. Mornings and evenings are always the best time to paint and draw in my experience as I love the light and atmosphere then. I only had time to do a quick watercolour sketch from memory at the time but wanted to interpret this picture on a large vertical scale at home in my studio, so worked in acrylic inks and mixed media on collaged and torn paper and texture mediums glued to a tall box canvas.
There is a lot of texture in this painting and I want the viewer to get lost in the moment and feel the same experience that I did when watching the light catch the last visible colours on the sea, sky and shore.
The sides of the canvas a repainted a mid blue colour to match the front, but I could paint them any colour if preferred or the canvas could be framed by the purchaser.
N.B. The 'in context' views are not always to scale, please check the measurements as stated in the description.
