The Italy and France paintings 2016

December 10, 2016

 

I’m finally getting around to finishing some paintings from 2016. It’s been a great year, having seen Winter turn to Spring in Florence, then Spring into Summer on the South of France. Most of the Summer was spent in Italy, in Tuscany and Venice, and finally Rome. These places are so beautiful, it’s ¬†certainly the reason I am a painter, it fills me with joy to be trying to represent beauty like this.

The Italy and France series, will be exhibited in 2017. Watch this space for more information. Here’s a few…..

These were the last studies I did before I left Scotland last month. The paintings were are of Cocklawburn beach, on the Northumbria coast, south of Berwick Upon Tweed. The waves rolled in, as the Autumn afternoon sun set.

St Abbs, Scotland

‘Pettico Wick, St Abbs’

Oil on linen

30×24″ 2016

In the Spring, before returning to Italy, I did a study of the lighthouse at St Abbs. The beautiful colours of the rocks, and a rich ultramarine sea was such a delight to paint.

For the last few weeks, I’ve been back on the east coast of Scotland. The fishing village of St Abbs, and the coastline walk, has again captured my imagination, so I’ve decided to do a series of this part of the Scottish coast.
