From the dunes

With all the rain, the flooding and the sudden drop in temperature over the last couple of weeks I have been dreaming of summer. Particularly sitting on the beach at shell bay and watching the tide. I felt like I deserved a little warmth, sunshine and rest after the hectic time spent with getting exhibitions together and so indulged myself - this is the result. Some people don't like blue paintings for the cold feeling that it gives them. These soft blues always make me think the opposite. I get transported to the feeling of summer heat.

Every time that I paint a view like this I seem to be honing down and painting less and less detail. A part of me wonders if I will get to a point where there is no realistic point of reference and I end with paintings of nothing but colour and light. Something for me to ponder going forward I think.

What a beautiful painting Lisa it reminds me of the arrival of spring time! not too long to wait I hope! What blues are you using?

Thanks Caroline. I used azure, coeruleum, indigo, indanthrene and pthalo (the tiniest touch) - the usual suspects ;o). I can't wait to see what you have been up to. Is your work on your galleries websites for us to see?
