Through the dunes and across the beach we see the island

Burgh Island:
From Bantham Beach

We leave the dunes to step out onto the ever shifting Bantham Beach, with Burgh Island before us.

This is a view many will instantly recognize as they arrive for their morning dog walk or a day at the seaside.

I make these paintings in order to capture the impression of a place. My ultimate intention is to make a larger artwork which will take a lot more time to complete than these acrylics do. I try-out ideas for all sorts of things, such as composition and colours. It's best to do this at this scale rather than get half way into a big paintings only to discover a decision wasn't very good and does not look right.
