East Head Sand bar is an original landscape painting by Stephen Kinder. This oil painting was painted on location on the beach in the summer. I work at speed and with expression, particularly with this painting as there were storm clouds gathering on this breezy day. There was a group of young people who were jumping into the water and having fun on the end of the sand bar and I tried to capture their energy as the rain started and the sky darkened however there was such a lot of drama to capture and try to record my observations.
Stephen Kinder, artist, is available for sale online and in our art gallery at Wychwood Art. Stephen James Kinder was born in West London, 1970.
I have always found great comfort in the landscape, and am constantly drawn to reflect this connection in the form of paintings both as small pieces on location and large studio pieces.
I am intrigued by the ever-changing weather and seasons, which so dramatically change a locality. My work intends to be a reaction to the essence of a place.
Some of my work is instinctive, drawing on location whilst other work derives from a memory or in response to a place visited. I find the way that light falls across the landscape and creates a particular mood an inspiration for intensely focussed compositional studies drawn in situ, capturing that particular moment in time.
Some of these places and landscapes I re-visit time and again and it is through my exploration and reflections that I have developed a deeper understanding of certain locations.
I have been Head of Creative Arts at Prior’s Field School in Godalming for the past 15 years and I regularly have both solo and group exhibitions. I sell my work both nationally and internationally and also work to private commissions.
