An original piece of art for friends or family on a special occasion, Christmas
or birthday is a gift that will last a lifetime, buying or commissioning art for
a wedding present for example is a great way for a more personal touch, you
could have a honeymoon or a wedding photo made into a lasting momento of this
special day, or maybe a landscape painting, limited edition print or photograph
from an area that they have fond memories of.
Gift vouchers are ideal if you would prefer the recipient to be able to choose
their art. Seascapes are always popular, calm and tranquil oceans or crashing
waves below a stormy sky, art can bring thoughts & memories of visits to the
coast and has a wonderful way of creating an emotional response and a connection
for the viewer.
Gaze at a beautiful atmospheric sunset over the sea in your living room! Or art
linked to a hobby or pastime is a great idea, original, contemporary or
traditional art will enhance and bring style and colour to any home or work
Some aspects to consider when choosing your art are: the medium, oils & acrylic:
acrylic is the modern equivalent to oils, its faster drying & can be used to
create a wide variety of effects. Oils create wonderfully subtle blends of
colour, both have supports of canvas, linen or wood panel, or watercolour:
watercolours can have a beautiful delicate quality, watercolours, prints,
photographs and art on paper will need framing for protection.
Colour can play a very important role in our everyday lives, it's mood
enhancing, vibrant reds and orange can create a positive & sunny feel when the
weather is gloomy! Yellows and golds are uplifting & stimulating, greens and
blues are calming and help us to relax and unwind.
The stunning scenery of the Dorset shoreline is the main inspiration for my
landscape and seascape paintings, I work in most mediums on canvas, linen &
paper, my preferred colour palette varies from vibrant reds to neutral cream and
gold & cool greens and greys, I enjoy the challenge of creating light and
atmosphere, capturing the changing light of the coast, my inspirations come from
the intensity of light and colour at sunrise and sunset, reflections of boats on
the water, stormy skies over the sea & the patterns and textures of the natural
world. I sell & exhibit worldwide and work to commission on a regular basis
