Summer Day at Whitesands Bay is an original oil painting by Fiona Carver. Painted last summer 'en plein air' whilst standing on the beautiful beach on the Welsh coast. Fiona Carver is a painter and printmaker from the Rutland/Leicestershire border. She trained at Edinburgh College of Art graduating with a BA (hons) in 1999 and now creates contemporary oil paintings and linocuts, depicting mainly landscapes and still life. She is interested in capturing an impression, the atmosphere, colours and emotion experienced at that time. Her landscape paintings are completed mostly ‘en plein air’ meaning they are painted outdoors, usually in one sitting. That way she can capture the light and weather, getting the brush marks down before it changes. The challenges of painting in wind or rain, with moving subjects and changing views adds to the exhilaration of finishing a painting, stepping back, stretching and absorbing what is on the canvas.

Fiona has been creating things since she was a tiny girl when her grandmother would encourage her to draw elaborate chalk pictures on her kitchen floor. She went on to study Design and Applied Arts at Edinburgh College of Art, graduating in 1999. Here she combined her love of drawing and painting with three-dimensional disciplines such as furniture and ceramics. She now pursues this interest in both flat and more hands on work through lino printing, enjoying the different stages of drawing, gouging lino and inking up and printing which she does with her antique cast iron press. She is inspired by the simplicity of old seaside railway posters as well as the atmosphere created by costal artists such as Sir Kyffin Williams and printmaker Robert Gilmore. Her prints have a nostalgic feel with the clear lines, compositions and colours evoking memories of particular British coast lines.
