Artist's description:

This painting by Sean Coupe captures the tide on the turn in the shadow of Cowbar Nab, Staithes, North Yorkshire. Painted 'Alla Prima' in the studio from a previous study. In this painting my focus was to capture the energy and atmosphere of the environment as the light fades and a storm rolls in.

When I paint En Plein Air, I like to work Alla Prima (painted in one session). Very quickly capturing a scene, harnessing my emotions with nature, making me at one with the environment. Allowing me to encapsulate the atmosphere of a time and a place. It is my emotional record of that moment.
