It’s all about the colour…

In my determination to not focus on the detail of the things that I paint, today I went totally extreme and came up with the following painting:

Puttsborough is a beautiful beach in North Devon. We spend a lot of time here and all of these colours each represent something about our holidays spent in and around the North Devon coast, whether it’s colours of the stunning sunsets we often sit and watch, or the colours reflected off the sea on a beautiful summers day.

Clearly it’s not a very technical painting to have done, but it was lovely to spend the time just concentrating on the colours, making sure that each one followed on logically from the other. The painting itself was very relaxing to do and I particularly like the way the colours have dried in a very subtle but (I think) eye-catching way.
