Medium/large landscape painting in an evolving series of paintings exploring the atmosphere, elegance and mystery of Dungeness beach and its working environment at dusk or... an hour before the night.
Lyrical arrangement of practical equipment on the last ridge before the shoreline.
Approached as a linear musical score, the overall tonality is punctuated by intensely coloured scattered bright passages, mysterious voids, structures and majestic machinery.
Painting Size: 102cm x 59cm
