Oil Painting

With the SOC exhibition now finished and the gallery walls well-stocked with lots of fresh work, I've managed to spend a bit of time making some new pieces.  I don't get  the opportunity to work in oils much during the year as the drying times can be a problem regarding hanging and/or packing, but I adore the medium.  So, I'm getting out the fat tubes and big brushes and seeing where this particular road takes me . . . .
. . . here's a few from the past couple of weeks;

'Heading Out; Gannet' - 28"x20"

'White Boat.Kirkwall Basin' - 16"x12"

'Wave Study' - 16"x12"

Amazing seascapes Tim! The first hand experience is more than obvious in your paintings..There are so few artists able to do this properly...
Thank you for sharing these with us...

I can feel the wind and hear the breaking waves when I look at the gannet. Paschalis is absolutely right about first hand experience.

Hi Tim,
I see you handle the water as proficiently as you paint your island wildlife. Beautiful work here Tim. Always great to see your work.
