Artwork description:

With this series I have been walking and exploring between Arnside and Silverdale and drawn to the estuary area of Newbarns just before the water of the Kent runs out into the expanse of the Bay. The small area here varies from shallow rocky and shaded outcrops to steep rockfaces and then vast open sands. Irrespective of the weather it is a beautiful space. This series is from a weekend of blue skies creating what was in some scenes an almost mediterranean feel as the light bounced off the water and acrosss the sands. As with other work these paintings have been built up in layers with a bold impasto style quickly developing that reflects my desire to connect with the painting and the environment.

This series introduces a NEW size of canvas - with this painting being 1 of 6 that I will be continuing on subsquent series... and will be referred to as Small/ Medium. This painting is complete with beautiful handmade, contemporary 'St Ives' style white frame - leading the eye into the work. Signed by me on the front - and labelled on the reverse this is ready to hang.
