Sheltering Sky


 After a few relatively fiddly paintings it was nice to get back to my Tonalist Brighton/Hove seafront paintings. Although they are of a specific location I am trying to make the focus the mood and light and not the location itself. I have been doing this by using strong foreground shapes (because I always like a strong design) but tonally merging them with the background so that the eye goes to the sun first and then on to the, in this case, shelter. The location is actually at the very end of the Hove/Portslade promenade where it meets the beginning of Shoreham Harbour (where Fatboy Slim etc lives).

I will do one more before I go on to another fiddly painting again (a commission) so that when I have five (I like odd numbers) I will approach a couple of local galleries... through gritted teeth though, I don't like dealing with galleries but in this case it might be worth my while.

Oil on linen 20" x 16".

There is a short step-by-step progress through this painting including what colours I used in previous posts on this blog.
