At the end of my road is the Thames Estuary, I’m amazed to find myself here having lived in London for almost thirty years and I’m even more amazed at how utterly wonderful the estuary and surrounding area is. This landscape, seascape, whatever you want to call it has influenced my art work ever since.
This is an early little painting, oil on canvas, for me I need to get things down in a quite representational way when I first find a place that inspires me, I guess its my way of getting to know a place, the forms, colours and textures. I am hoping to show in my blog my art journey over the last 4 years and onward into the future, of moving to a new place and learning how to get all the inspiration this place gives me down on paper and canvas.
