Cley creek

Title: Cley creek
Description: Its late summer and small creeks run across the marshes, with a shingle barrier holding back the sea. Cows graze steadily to the right of the marshland, and a small yacht sails slowly across the sea. This was painted on location at Cley visitor centre on a beautiful autumn day. I'd put the cows in via artistic licence but a visitor who'd looked at the work as I was painting came back to tell me the cows were just there but out of my line of vision to the left and as we were chatting the yacht sailed into view. life mirroring art perhaps, or just knowledge of the landscape. take your pick..

Artist Biography:

I didn't start to paint until in my 40's when I learned it wasn't that I couldn't paint - the issue was the rubbish materials we used at school. Nan's mantra was " you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear" and that's so true.
Soon as I began with quality materials I found far better results and became addicted to art. I use all media, alone or mixed, and cover a wide range of subjects. I only use top quality products sas I want my art to look as good in 200 years as it does today. That costs of course - you can buy cheap art or you can buy an IKEA print etc. for very little cost, but if you want lasting art ensure that the artist uses products with proven longevity.
Sadly I paint far less now due to health issues, but still love to dabble and to look at what others have been doing.
