I live and paint in the Scottish Borders village of Town Yetholm and my paintings relate mostly to the local landscape from the Bowmont Valley, where I live, out to the Northumberland coast. This painting is from a series following regular visits to a favourite beach just south of Berwick upon Tweed. I have attempted to recreate the atmosphere of one particular early morning with a glowing sky reflecting over wet sands, rocks and rock pools. In the studio I used a water based underpainting followed by glazes of thin colour until the image became established.This can often take weeks to achieve but on this occasion only a few days. This painting has a simple narrow frame but I am listing it as unframed thus giving the option to add a frame of choice or leave as is. Please refer to the insitu photograph.
