Beach sunshine sparkles Gordon Hunt Original acrylic painting on Belgium linen. As I stood on the beach - A burst of sunshine reached - Across the sea and the sand - ............................ (whats your line to complete the poem?) - 'Beach sunshine sparkles is taken from a recent visit to the north Cornwall coast. Walking the coast path in the bright sunshine and cool breeze. Later, standing on the beach as the sun shines across it, feeling a great sense of freedom to enjoy the out-doors. Other people with their families and their dogs also enjoy the sunshine, two surfers venture out into the water to 'catch a wave' or two. 'Beach sunshine sparkles' is an original painting by Gordon Hunt. It is painted in acrylic on heavy weight Belgium linen, hand stretched on sturdy stretcher bars. The painting is ready to hang, or can be framed if you prefer. Why not commission your own painting of your own special place? Speak to Deborah Allan at Wychwood Art, telephone 07799535765. Gordon Hunt paints beautiful, colourful and relaxing paintings. Gordon works from his home studio in Fowey, Cornwall. “I paint the light effects of sunshine on water, with sparkling reflections and silhouettes, resulting in strong contrasting colours and dynamic shapes,” he explains. “I have a real sense of ‘painting the light’ when creating these works, evoking the feeling of sunshine, holidays and well being, which I think is why they are so popular.” “The camera is my sketchbook, I carry it at all times, ready to capture a moment, a ray of light, a sparkle of water. Back in the studio I sketch out the composition in my sketchbook, it has brown paper pages, so as well as the shapes drawn with a black pencil, I also use a white pencil to indicate the white, bright areas of the painting.” Gordon Hunt paints in acrylic on box canvas. “The quick drying properties of acrylic suits my style of painting, building up layers of colour, working towards the brightest parts of the painting. I also like the modern clean look of box canvas on the wall.
