Beaches Watercolour Series
I have like a great many of us here in the U.K have always loved being near the sea. Some of my fondest childhood memories revolved around a day at the seaside. To me however the beaches I remember most fondly from my childhood where the ones on the East coast of Scotland. They were rugged, open to the elements and very often deserted. Not a stick of candy floss or an amusement arcade in sight!!
Now I live in Cumbria I have to my great delight discovered a number of beaches that I can very often have to myself in fact I now live in a little village on the west coast with the beach literally at the end of my road which you can very often get to yourself if you get up early enough in the morning.
One of the things I have noticed that is especially evident on the beaches here on the Cumbrian West Coast is how big the skies are and it is the wide open beaches and big skies that are the inspiration for this series of watercolours.
This series of watercolours is simply called - Beaches!
