I think this ones finished now, I've signed it either way and it's off the easel :

It still needs a coat of varnish to really bring the colours out and level it a bit, then a nice frame to set it off

"Sunlit cliffs at Bunker bay"
oils on hemp 2013
no idea how big cause I left it at the studio

I'm testing out a new Art Auction site that I was recently told about, so thought I'd try a small seascape :

this one is up on for sale now, click the pic to see the listing

I already have my small still life paintings, and my limited edition prints up there, but a seascape is the real test to see if the site actually sells anything

obviously if you're interested in this piece and don't want to sign up to Artfido for a one-off purchase, contact me and I'll put it up in the store section here on my site

Here's the full video of me painting a 2.4 metre wide tryptich of a view of the main bay at Rottnest Island,

oils on hemp

It took 38.5 hours of actual painting time, plus the seasickness inducing boat trip to get the reference shots, hand preparing the canvasses and the days and days of drying time between layers
