Sunset Over Ashford.

IMG_E0684 - CopyA move in the right direction technique wise.  Never tried painting a sunset and rarely see a full one now because Pilton Village is blocked from such things.  I’m still attempting to freshen things up and become more spontaneous and gladly this is going that way.  This is Ashford Strand near Heanton in North Devon, on the River Taw.  In the distance is Fremington Quay.  I fished here as a boy and now you can drink coffee at the Riverside Cafe and eat at the Braunton Inn which used to be Heanton Court.  This is oil on 36 x 36″ canvas.  Al

Pyramid Fire.

IMG_0548 copyThe latest in the Glastonbury Festival series.  Oil on canvas 36 x 36″.  I usually work at the festival with the recycling crew and thoroughly enjoy the week but this year it’s sadly not on, so instead of going i’ve painted.  This is a commission piece but hopefully the new owner will allow me to run off some prints.  Al

 

Summer Reflection.

IMG_0576 - Copy.JPG
Completed oil painting of a reflection seen in a Braunton art shop window.  In North Devon we’ve had an incredible summer, for a change, and this painting hopefully depicts that warmth and optimism.  Painted on canvas and measures 36 x 36″.  Actually a painting of me returning from a cycle ride around Crow Point and the Great Marsh in Braunton.
