Over The Boardwalk.

An acrylic painting on 1000 x 700mm canvas just to keep my flow going during the first part of this year. This composition was going to be of a Hercules C130 transporter flying low over Crow Point at sunset, but after completion I have decided to omit it. My wife and I had been walking around the Point from Saunton Beach then decided, as it was getting late, to walk back along the boarwalk before the light went. Looking back towards the sunset the sun bleached boards were almost luminous under the ebbing light. This is my attempt at setting that scene! Al

Tiger Moth over the Folly.

The finished acrylic painting is 1000 x 7000mm on canvas. The painting is inspired by an evening walk with my son Archie to take some photographs of the summer sunset from the Upcott Folly. This folly is near Pilton, Barnstaple in North Devon. A Tiger Moth biplane on it’s evening flight from Eaglescott Airfield flew over and we managed to take some great pictures. I must have a flight in this wonderful plane. Al
