Precipitation in Sight
Original Seascape Painting
Oil Paint on Canvas
Size: H 60cm x W 90cm x D 2cm
Precipitation in Sight is an original painting by Kim Pragnell. Precipitation is the nautical term for rain and the seascape I have created gives the feeling of oncoming wetness! The coast of Ireland has many inlets and coves, all offering the artist plenty of superb choices for painting such evocative scenes. The background colour of this painting is red, allowing the drama of this damp picture to come through, as I scored through the surface of the oil paint. The end product is one of restrained drama, as the hint of the sea breaks over the granite rocks.

Kim Pagnell, painter, is available for sale online and in our art gallery at Wychwood Art. Kim Pagnell was born in 1952, miles from the sea. 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.
