This painting is way ahead at £256 – WOO HOO! Out of 300+ canvases in the auction, it’s actually doing really well and in the Top 20 price wise. Ahead of Dame Kelly Holmes, Mike Leigh Lee Evans, Ashley Cole, Clifford the listerene dragon….
The painting I’ve created depicts a day ‘Beside the Seaside’ here in Brighton. I have used several pebbles ‘stolen’ from the beach as heads for the people (and dogs) taking a stroll along the promenade. I look for natural markings, chips and contours on the pebbles that can be used to resemble facial, hair and head gear type features. A hole in the pebble becomes a mouth, a chipped area separates the face from the hair and so on. Sometimes I paint on a face, sometimes I need do no more than a dot for an eye.
