Sun, Sea and Sand!

Hi Everyone,

Spring is just starting to make an appearance here in Kent in England.

As regular readers of this blog will know I like to paint watercolours from my photos of  seascapes and so I thought a post bringing a few of my Seascapes together might help me look forward to the warmer and  sunnier days to come.

Going through my paintings archive I discovered that there are many such paintings, too many to put here so I have just chosen some that I painted over the past few years. Most of the painting are 14 inches by 10 and painted on Arches 300gsm watercolour paper.

Mostly they are places I am familiar with but one or two fit into the category of place I would like to visit as they were gifts or commissions.

I hope you like them!

  1. I am partial to the last painting but all make me look forward to longer days and warmer sunshine. Spent last week doing the Disney thing in Orlando, where there was plenty of heat and sun, but came back to a snowstorm. In the meantime, while waiting for leaves on the trees, your images are a nice reminder of summer days to come! : )
