New Set of Wales Paintings

Here's a cute little set of new canvasses based on the photographic material I gathered in Wales last month on the Gower peninsula.

The canvasses are all 8" x 8" block canvasses and will be presented unframed.  They are nice and chunky, and are designed so that they can hang on the wall in groups.  I think they look pretty good.

I've done them in acrylic, so that the paint doesn't stand too proud of the surface, and they have a nice fluid look about them with just a little texture.  Acrylic is a water-based paint (but don't get it on your clothes!), but you can still get a nice thick buttery effects with it, or a thin wash if really watered down.  

I think that they look really fun and contemporary.

Big Clouds, Rhossili Bay (Acrylic on linen, 8 x 8)
 Dark Sky, Bracelet Bay (Acrylic on linen, 8 x 8)
 Foxgloves, Rhossili (Acrylic on linen, 8 x 8)
Grasses and Sand, Worms Head (Acrylic on linen, 8 x 8)
 Pink and Yellow Flowers, Bracelet Bay (Acrylic on linen, 8 x 8)
 Sunset, Worms Head from Rhossili (Acrylic on linen, 8 x 8)
 Trees, Caswell Bay (Acrylic on linen, 8 x 8)
 Wet Sand, Rhossili Beach (Acrylic on linen, 8 x 8)
All these paintings will be on show at the Lime Tree Gallery in Bristol later in the year.
