Bude Beach Winter Painting

Bude Beach Winter Painting – In Progress (Acrylic, 60x20cm)

I was talking here about painting a series of pictures this year, every week, of the same subject, and seeing how the light and season changes the scene. And I’ve hit upon my subject! It’s always hard to choose just one because so many ideas come to me. But I’ve chosen Bude beach – I love the wonderful sense of sky and space in this view, which to me just encapsulates what I love about Bude.

And the series will tie in with my solo exhbition there in October. I hope to be able to show these quicker studies alongside the larger paintings.

I was thinking of working further on this one, but I kind of like it as it is. Wonder what you think? More work, or move on to the next one?

Bude Harbour Painting in Progress (Detail)

Here’s this week’s painting – a section of one of Bude Harbour that I’m currently working on. I love the feeling of wintry cold in this one. Such wonderful colours, shapes and textures there – cold pinks and soft creams. Finally got the water looking right today. And I’m abandoning my brushes and working more with painting knives. Such fun!
