Artist's description:

“Lucy’s Walk” is an acrylic painting on plywood panel with a wooden frame 122cms wide and 92cms height, with a depth of 2 cms.
*Lucy’s Walk” relates to one of the daily walks I make every morning along the Sefton coast. It is a dog walk which I used to make with two greyhounds, but now with just one of the pair following Lucy’s passing. It is a painting that intends to celebrate the colour and atmosphere of the ever changing skies, the horizon and the landscape of the Sefton coastline in the U.K. I walk the coastline every morning in all weathers throughout the year. The colours seen here were evident in August and September. Warm dry mornings along an area known as ‘Green Beach, where tall grasses meet the sand against a backdrop of undulating dunes. The morning skies are often stunning with orange and ceruleum blue and powdered white. On such mornings blue light is reflected onto the tide. This is not a literal painting. It is a response to a location and the memories it holds. The painting doesn’t attempt to replicate reality.
Most recently I’ve been working on plywood board because when using knives, rubbing down areas and cutting into the paint I need a strong base with a bold key. I work quickly in practice and build the paintings in layers, then I ‘rest’ the works, review and continue to overlay colours, often scraping away previously applied layers.
I always reference the Fauvist artists Matisse, Vlaminck and Derain and the Impressionists, Monet, Pissarro and Vuillard together with modernists Gillian Ayres, David Hockney, Howard Hodgkin and Patrick Heron. The painting is shipped in a heavy duty cardboard crate.
