Bringing you colour from the coast
Inspired by journeys along the South West Coast Path searching for surf spots in the 1990’s as a 30 year old surfer. Steve revisits ten of the most beautiful spots. Sees them through the eyes of an impressionist painter thirty years later. Painting Gouache plein air sketches on location then returning to the studio to work them up into larger panoramic acrylic paintings on canvas.

Some of my favourite things about living on the coast in Woolacombe, North Devon. Early morning walks along the beach , foraging for sights and experiences that will fill my day with ideas for paintings. Watching the sun set off Morte Point with family and friends after a swim or surf in the sea. Rounded off with a tasty feed from the beach cafe then the slow amble home to fall into a deep sun kissed, salt enriched sleep!
My aim is to create impressionist paintings, filled with sunlight and passionate colour that celebrate the connection with nature that makes us all feel good!
