This painting has taken quite a long time. Partly because I only paint when I’m at my mum’s and partly because it was difficult.
It was only when I was into the painting that I realised that it is really a picture in two halves. The top seascape is complete on its own, and the bottom half is a landscape, and that it complete on its own. What I found so difficult was trying to make the two halves work together. The colours in the cliffs and sea are completely different from the landscape and the path. I have tried to introduce the shapes in the sea into the path. I’m still not sure that it works. If it doesn’t I can paint over the path again and make it into one simple colour.
I did this painting from a photo by Guy Edwards. It was a on calendar for this year. Mr Edwards said that he was happy for me to use his photo, which was very kind of him. When my mum contacts photographers they have all been very generous and said, yes, I can use their work. So ‘thank you very much’.
