New seascape paintings of Cornwall for sale in a relaxing blue colour palette – acrylic on canvas.

I'm very pleased to share three new acrylic impasto paintings of Portreath beach in Cornwall. They focus on the soft early morning light, known as the golden hour. I love being on the beach at his hour, the world is waking up and the soft sound of the sea lapping at my feet is very relaxing. These paintings are calm and relaxing, they are about feeling calm and looking out across the blue ocean to try to see the distant headlands. Although they are marine paintings, they are as much paintings of the sky as they are a paintings of the sea. The sky dominates these compositions with swirling and undulating clouds in subtle pinks and blues entering and leaving the picture plane at will.

Using a myriad of acrylic painting techniques, I gradually build up the surface of these paintings to create subtle ocean artworks. I like to use impasto acrylic techniques to add texture and to help to create the feeling of a three-dimensional space.

Blue is very important to these paintings, it is the colour of distance, a receding colour. One particular favourite I Specifically like to use is ultramarine blue, it is a key colour on my palette. A lovely warm blue that effortlessly shifts to violet. I like to mix a variety of warm blues and violets, heating them up and cooling them down as I go, much like the way a sudden flash of sun across the water warms things up or a cloud blocking the sun cools the scene.

I like to finish my canvas artworks with a professional artists varnish, I create my own bespoke sheen which helps to reduce the glare from direct lighting and protects the surface from the effects of dust. These acrylic impressionist landscape paintings are all framed and ready to hang on an office wall or as art for the home. They are framed in a bespoke hardwood frame that is finished in a subtle satin black finish. They are supplied with a cord on the back, so they are ready to go.

These are available through to view on they can be purchased individually or ideally; they could be bought as a group of three. They were made together in a group and would hang together well side by side as a group. Thank you very much for reading, please following the links to the singulart website, here you will be able to view and purchase these artworks.
