Bamborough Beach

Bamborough Beach 16x20 oil on Canvas

Bamborough beach is in Northumberland, just below Bamborough Castle in the UK
This is from a photo taken by Brian Bond

I have always painted very light colours, and I'm beginning to understand more how important to squint and see that grasses particularly long grasses have many colours in them including swathes of dark patches as the wind takes them.
The sky and clouds were fun to do, perhaps the water should have been a little darker not enough squinting!

  1. I like these kind of paintings best I think. Both to paint and to view. Just so calming.
