The Heat is On!

The Heat is On!

Well, Spring seemed to slip by in a chilly blur with what seemed liked a whole month of cold winds.

May however hasn’t dissapointed so far. With an air pattern starting way down in Morocco , we have been treated to some Spring warmth, that feels more like high Summer and what a difference it makes!

The colour and light changes to a warmer palette and suddenly I have my favourite subject matter and conditions available.

I feel a series of beach and coastal paintings focusing on strong sunlight, glare and warmth coming on. Every time I start one of these topics , I get a real feeling of purpose and satisfaction.

I hope they give you a warm feeling too?

Here are a few of my recent paintings. Just click on the titles to get more details on the website.

Have a great day!
