Mermaid street, Rye
This has proved one of my most complex works due to all the angles and vanishing points, and the addition of figures too.
Flatford To Dedham
I took the original photo back in 1994, but at the time I didn't have the skill to do it justice in paint. Now 20 years later I feel at last I have captured the feel of the place - little changed since the days of Constable, though sadly now lacking the rural industry he painted.
The North Norfolk coast has an interesting atmosphere due to the isolated little settelments strung along a shore that hides behind acres of salt marsh. Blakeney with its narrow tidal channel to the open sea is typical.
Late October, and it was the last hot day of the year. The tide was out, and we walked into the harbour, and sat down with an ice cream in the lee of the buildings, here painstakingly painted with over 100 windows!
Sandy Hills, Dumfries And Galloway
The Dumfries and Galloway coast is full of sweeping bays of mud and sand where the tide can retreat several miles. Sandy Hills is one such place, and here it is mainly sand, and so very accessible. This painting is a combination of two views allowing me to rmeove a lot of obscuring shrubbery.
Images on a website are no match for seeing the original picture in real life. For this reason I sell originals only face to face through events. I do offer a range of merchandise through my redbubble account - www.redbubble.com/people/richardpaul
