Stormy Sea By Sarah Morley - sold when still wet! But commissions welcome
I did this painting after I had finished tutoring my Friday knife painting classes, only about 3 weeks ago. It was great to get some large knives out and really let rip! It is painted mainly in Prussian Blue, white with some pale turquoise and dark violet. I was really pleased with how well the spray came up. I think the secret of this was that I also used Griffin Alkyd White, which is a fast drying white oil paint. This is a different texture from the usual slow drying oil paint.
The painting was on the easel a week later, still wet when we had our open studios event and it sold! Missing it already! If anyone would like a similar painting - maybe as a Christmas present? - please contact me.
Below is another of my seascapes - again sold! They do not stay with me for very long.

I am an artist, based in Stockport, UK, where I am part of the communal art studios in an old cotton mill, Vernon Mill. Art is my second career. I started it over 30 years ago when I started a Fine Art degree which I was really not ready for. I returned to my painting over 6 years ago. I paint mainly landscapes and seascapes in a semi abstract way that I hope invokes the feeling of 'being there'. Texture, light, colour and energy are important in my painting.
