Coast and Country

Coast and Country / Watercolour

A loose and impressionistic view of a coastal scene in North Wales. Capturing the atmospheric conditions and colours of the northern coastline of the UK. The lines of boats emphasise the perspective in this very descriptive scene. There is an essentially Northern look to the distant headland and its blue colouration, influencing the whole painting, which in turn creates the dynamic of the atmosphere. Figures can be seen walking in between the beached sailing boats and the gentle curve of the sea further reinforces the sense of distance. The sky is peppered with cloud formations and weather conditions typical of this region.
