An Idea Begins... - a Sussex seascape

Title: An Idea Begins... - a Sussex seascape
Description: This is a 30 x 30 x 1.5 inches seascape skyscape painting that was inspired by a day out in Brighton. It shows a very small figure walking along the beach with a drama happening in the sky as he or she is forming an idea. The sun is partially hidden by the clouds but is emerging through them and forming patterns with them. It is semi abstract, expressionistic in style and the colours range from golden yellow through to deep reds and purples. Having lived in Brighton as an art student, I often had my best ideas and epiphany's walking the stony beach there. It is where I recovered my senses after upsets and made plans for the future. Humans need space in order to get a perspective on their lives and to sort out problems and not go mad. The sea is a wonderful place to do this so this painting is simply intended as a thank you to the sea and sky. The edges are white and no frame is needed.

Artist Biography:

I am a Sussex based artist who paints large original landscape paintings and seascape paintings in oil on canvas.

My art is painted mostly from memory after having visited somewhere beautiful and are an attempt to capture some of the essence of that place.

I gained a fine art degree from Brighton in 1983 and began my painting career as a portraitist and muralist. However, sometime in the late 90’s, after painting my 200th labrador, I realised I was crushingly bored and needed to develop my own painting style and began to paint landscapes and seascapes for my own amusement.

I am inspired by the patterns and movements of nature and animals and eventually developed a painting style that combines traditional painting techniques with more abstract and contemporary techniques.

My artworks evolve from simple ideas, usually after I have taken a walk somewhere. They are expressionistic, impressionist, art deco, art nouveau and something possibly unique to me in the feeling they evoke.

I like to think that paintings have ‘little souls’ woven into them by artist’s and that these are what call to a viewer (or not as the case may be) and give a painting presence and desirability.

My goal is to one day paint a place so beautiful I will disappear into it and never be seen again and to create worlds where others can do the same – even if only for a little while.
