Wild swimming – swimming in open water, particularly the bright, crisp turquoise waters of Cornwall is totally exhilerating. I am lucky to have the turquoise waters of Cornwall as my source of inspiration, trying to capture the translucent colour and bright sparkle of the water is a challenge. With these studies I keep painting and trying different things and keep painting, and keep painting…… … & swimming…..
Gordon Hunt paints beautiful, colourful and relaxing paintings. “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 buildsup layers of colour, working towards the brightest parts of the painting. I also like the modern clean look of box canvas on the wall.
