An Online Exhibition - Seafront Paintings

August 1, 2020 - November 1, 2020

This collection of paintings represents my abiding interest in the subject of seaside esplanades and seafront scenes. Most of which are inspired by my living near the sea at Great Yarmouth in Norfolk, and later by the sea in West Wales. The majority feature people, as they are my principal subject matter, but the setting in which they are placed is most often the main instigation that prompts a new painting project.

I find seaside locations are inspirational, as they are ready made stage sets, waiting it seems for just the right people to appear, for which I am happy to oblige. There are though some paintings shown here, of settings where by chance while I looked, so by some quirk of good fate just the right figure arrived, as if by divine intervention.
