Kim Pragnell, ‘The Causeway seascape’ In theses days of isolation, it’s sometimes good to be solitary. A seascape without the sea, dark rain clouds and a small cottage. Who doesn’t dream of this? The road, a causeway, slices through the landscape, the rich indigo giving way to sharp Naples Yellow. Although escape is possible, it’s only by retracing your steps. The work comes unframed, although this can be included in the price.
Size: H:60 cm x W:90 cm

Joined Royal Navy,aged 14 and worked in boatyards when I left. After this Kim pursued a career as a Theatre Designer. In 1990 Kim became Head of Art at Watford College and taught for 20 years.
Now, Kim has two studios, one in Hampshire and one in Dorset.
I have been a painter for over 40 years, based largely in the SouthWest and on the coast. My overriding interest has been the sea, with seven years in the Royal Navy, time with Seagoing tugs and cable ships and working in traditional boatyards. I have painted extensively in watercolôur and became quite enamoured with the amazing qualities one could extract from this medium. Discovery of oil paint was a revelation and I have been exploring the joy of this medium ever since. I teach others how to paint the sea, how to master both the medium and the subject. To be able to both understand and appreciate the majesty of the sea, to recreate the energy and excitement, and to play with the light, colour and texture is something every artist should experience and I am privileged to have that ability.
