After I delivered my paintings to The Pie Factory Gallery for the U.A. Summer exhibition on Thursday, I treated myself to an afternoon’s en plain air painting in Thanet.
The weather was wonderfully warm as I set my easel up at Botany Bay, Broadstairs and there were plenty of people out and about relaxing on the sands, splashing around in the water and generally enjoying the glorious weather.
Botany Bay, Broadstairs – Oil En Plein Air 15.06.17 #1. £450.
Botany Bay, Broadstairs – Oil En Plein Air 15.06.17 #2. Oil plain air. £650
I painted two scenes of day-trippers on the sands which really give a sense of the heat of the day with the warm tones of the sand contrasting with the cool blues the sky and sea.
With the chalk cliffs and the windbreakers in the foreground these paintings are lovely images of an English summer’s day at the Kent coast!
The paintings are still drying but will be available for sale shortly. If you’d like to reserve the painting please email me.
