Early Light

Early Light.
Oil on Canvas board.
7 x 5 in. or 17.8 x 12.7 cm.

Another study of the creeping tide down at St Anthony in the early light.  I did a watercolour the other day.  I find it interesting to see the same subject portrayed in different medium.  I love the way watercolour works, sometimes the paint seems to do most of the work for you. Watercolours are of dreams, like another world whilst oils, on the other hand, have an intensity and solidarity that sits in a little frame and becomes a slice of passionate life.

This and the one above it are beautifully painted with such a great response to the spirit of the place..
