On the beach, Carbis Bay. 100x100 cm.
Living at a summer holiday resort with a great beach has finally rubbed off on me, and I have felt compelled to work on some beach paintings. I have enjoyed painting the beach umberellas with their graphic patterns, and painting people under them has been a natural progression - although I am more well known for the absolute abscence of people in my paintings ! But the way I'm putting people in isn't like a portrait , they are just a human part of the landscape in my eyes. My long suffering partner Tracey has been roped in as a model - bless 'er - I haven't drawn from the figure since life classes six years ago.
