I visited the Isle of Wight earlier this week to deliver a collection of recent paintings to Island Fine Arts in Bembridge.
After dropping off the pictures there was just time to paint the view from Culver Down, before having a fish and chip supper and catching the ferry home. It would have been nice to have stayed longer.
Today, I was pleasantly surprised to find one of the paintings on the front page of the gallery website. Rye Harbour, shown above, is in oil on board and measures 12 x 12 inches. It was painted on location in the fading light just after sunset.
