This piece has left me for it's new home in the Midlands.
My client is a coastal lad who's work means he has to live relatively far from the ocean, I hope the painting brings happy memories of times past.

Stunning! Gorgeous! Colors are breathtaking and moody!

It must be difficult parting with a piece like this, Sam.

Lovely piece of work. Feel sorry for the fella stuck away from the beach, but I don't think you need to 'hope' that this painting will do the desired job, I think you can be sure. Some people would wager a quid it might bring him back away from the inland, if that's even a possibility.

Colours great, something about the angles even better. It's not the old toggy's trick of triangles is it?

Thanks once again.

Thanks ana, sometimes it's hard to let them go, but I know this one is going to a good home......and the money helps !

Hello Freak, I think maybe one day the buyer will return to the coast, but for now he's stuck with his work.

To be honest, I don't know why the basic simple composition works so well in this case.
The old rule of thirds works for most things, but sometimes if you tweak it a bit it's even better.
.....was gonna ramble on about
boring theory then, but stopped myself just in time !!!

.......sorry Snapper, didn't spot your comment before I wrote mine.

Hope it looks good on your wall.

Snapper said...

Will let you know when it arrives..

I must measure that space on the Stairs and send you the details.

It will be a bitch of a shape to fill, but then that is not my problems. lol...

Hope all is well.

knifepainter said...

Busy as ever my friend.

Looking forward to getting to grips with that odd space above your stairs.

Let me know the dimensions.

The painting is now on the wall and looks great.

It took a while to get around to hanging it up, Well to knock a few tacks through a hook is a lot to ask a bloke after all... lol

Thanks agian
