Theres always something to see on Bawdsey beach in Suffolk,- its littered with ageing sea defence and lookout posts crumbling into the sea. I like to go walk there once or twice each year and recently decided to make 2 art pieces depicting the scene. These are now over in my Etsy shop for sale http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/sunnySUFFOLKart
Decided to paint a local scene of a windsurfer off the Felixstowe beach. this case is shiny chromed steel and my main worry was that i wasnt sure whether paint would stick to well to it. i neednt have worried ,acrylic paint stuck to it like shit to a blanket,haha. once it had dried i added 2 coats of clear varnish as a protector and im pleased with the end result. later put it in my etsy shop for sale, http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/sunnySUFFOLKart
made this using sea driftwood that i collected after a big storm a few years ago on Felixstowe beach. This cabinet used up pretty much everything i collected that day . Driftwood has a strange feel to it,its kinda rough to the touch and has a real mystery about it ,The middle door section reminds me of a face dont you think? the cabinet will look cool in a bathroom with a beach theme,add a few seashells and youre now on the beach! you can look at my cabinet closer in my Etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/sunnySUFFOLKart iv several different cabinets all have a different style depending on the driftwood.
Seaside town of Clacton in Essex holds many great memories for me, especially the beach-It seems a timeless place of days out,sandshoes,kids shrieking on the pier rides,swimming in the sea -which all can be refreshing!. I had wanted to paint the scene for ages and finally got to it recently. I then repurposed a vintage picture frame by spray painting it 1970 Ford light blue-i remember seeing an early Ford Cortina Mk3 in this shade and that all seemed appropriate to Clacton beach. What dyou reck? Its now in my Etsy shop for sale http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/sunnySUFFOLKart
beach runs for miles at Pembrey ,you stop when it becomes a target range by RAF planes.The rolling welsh hills surround it . Using acrylics i painted the scene and then framed it up under glass with a vintage wood frame. its now for sale in my etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/sunnySUFFOLKart
crabbing-,catching small shore crabs is a popular Summertime pastime in the tidal creek at Walberswick in Suffolk.The crabs are always released when you decided to leave , most peeps use bacon in a net to catch them. I painted this scene using acrylic paints over a board base and will frame it up under glass .
at Felixstowe beach the seabirds make me smile, they come close and run about in a funny manner.I decided to make this 2 art plaques using driftwood, pebbles and bakers twine to remind me of the birds there.What dyou reck? its now in my etsy shop for sale http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/sunnySUFFOLKart
id got the idea to paint this scene after going for a long walk along the river bank between Martlesham and Woodbridge in Suffolk . Sun was out and it was one of those “almost Spring ” type of days and the clouds were coasting along overhead . The riverside paths were muddy and slippy they wont dry out for weeks with all the rain we have had .Out in the river a yacht was moored up but i didnt see anybody on it .
Walking the islands beaches you can see all sorts of stuff poking up out of the sand,such as pieces of long gone jetty and rusty metal hoops . You pause briefly to look and then carry on with your walk . This makes for an interesting walk. iv tried to capture a typical scene there in this painting. What dyou think? its now framed up and is in my etsy shop for sale http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/sunnySUFFOLKart
