Salt Marsh Series

The salt marsh has its moods depending on the weather and time of day, much like these paintings – much like the artist too I guess –

saltmarsh dawn
Salt Marsh at Dawn
saltmarsh evening light
Salt Marsh in the Evening

painted these together alternating between, working on one while the other’s layers were drying and vice versa.

Both are representational of the same salt marsh at different times of day and in different lights. I may need to do a series.

Which draws the eye more? What do you think?

  1. The second one is certainly very striking but I love the first – the subtle colours are very calming with just enough contrast in the tiny sun that I could stare at it for ages 🙂

    1. Thanks for commenting Nicola. Initially I preferred the sunset. But I’ve grown to appreciate the mystery in the sunrise. A landscape hidden in mist vs stark clarity is compelling in it’s own way. Definitely more meditative.
